Doggie Treats

I decided to make some treats for a Christmas present for my dog, as well as all the other doggies in my life. This includes family member's dogs, my parent's friend's dogs, and my boyfriend's dogs. TONS OF DOGS! I found the recipe while searching on Google. It took me to a blog called things for boys. I also found tons of other great ideas there too! Here's the recipe directly from the blog:

Doggie Treats
makes about 60

160g (1 1/2 cups) rolled oats (quick cooking or regular) 
50g (1/3 cup) margarine 
1 1/4 cups boiling water 
1 beef or chicken stock cube
185g (1 cup) peanut butter
1 egg
300g (2 cups) wholemeal flour

Preheat oven to 165ÂșC (330°F) and line 2 baking trays with baking paper. In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, margarine, stock cube and boiling water. Let stand 10 minutes. Thoroughly stir in peanut butter and egg. Mix in flour, until a stiff dough has formed. 
Knead dough on a lightly floured surface. You may need to add a little more flour as needed until dough is smooth and no longer sticky. Roll or pat out dough to 5 mm thickness. I find the dough is a bit rubbery, so I don't need to roll it between sheets of baking paper, it goes fine straight on the bench. Cut with cookie cutter or a knife and place 1 cm apart onto the prepared baking trays. Bake 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Cool before serving. 

You can leave them plain, or use dog safe icing for some extra bling. I chose to make some of them look prettier by using icing!
Now here are my treats:

As you can see, there were a few icing drips.
And some more here too.

All bagged up and ready to be given!

If you have some sweet pups in your life, make them some homemade dog treats for in their stockings. They'll love you even more!
