August is here and that means it’s time for the 2016 Summer Olympics. We all know if our dogs starred in the Olympic event they’d be receiving gold medals across the board. Why not have the best of both worlds and make Gold Medals for your dog that are also edible! Have your dog chew their way to victory with this step by step recipe and diy project.
Supplies You Need
Pair of Scissors
Circular Cookie Cutter or Cup
Circular Cake Decorator Tip (or straw)
Ingredients You Need
2 Cups Flour (Whole Wheat or Non-Bleached)
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 Cup Peanut Butter
1 Cup Milk
45 – 60 minutes
Instructions Part One – Make the Treats
Preheat oven to 375’F.
Combine the flour and baking powder in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix the peanut butter and milk. It may be easier to nuke the peanut butter in the microwave for a few seconds.
Add the peanut butter/milk mixture to dry ingredients and mix well. It should start to resemble a dough like substance, like this:
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll dough to desired thickness.
Use either a round cookie cutter or a cup to cut our circular cookies from the dough.
Using the cake decorator tip, push a hole through each cookie. This is to string the ribbon once the cookies are done baking.
Bake for 12-14 minutes. Keep an eye on them so that they don’t burn!
Instructions Part Two – Cut and Tie the Ribbons
While your treats are baking in the oven, you can work on this step. Cut strips of ribbon to desired length.
String the ribbon through the hole you created in the cookie
Tie a Knot
Step 4 – Optional
Decorate using the dots you cut out in part one.
That’s it! Now it’s time for your dog to show off their best skills in order to earn that delicious gold medal.
