Candy Cane Dog Treats
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- ½ cup powdered milk
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 2 large eggs (set one aside for egg wash)
- 1 tsp. Peppermint oil
- red food coloring (optional)
Combine and whisk together all of the wet ingredients. One at a time, add each of the dry ingredients while stirring well to evenly distribute. When all ingredients are combined, knead the dough 2 – 3 minutes on a floured surface. Divide the dough in half. Add the peppermint and food coloring into one half and work it in, while adding additional food coloring until you reach the desired shade of red. Keeping the dough divided, return to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate at least 1 hour or until the dough is firm.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees; cover a cookie sheet with foil and generously spray with nonstick cooking spray. Beat egg in a small bowl, set aside for egg wash. Create a work surface of wax paper.
Remove dough from the refrigerator and break each dough color into equal pieces – approximately 1 tablespoon in size – may be larger or smaller depending on the size of your dog! Roll each piece into a snake-like shape and place on your wax paper surface. Use one of each dough color and twist each color together and bend at the top to create a candy cane shape. Note, the dough will be sticky as you begin working with it. Place each candy cane dog treat on the foil lined baking sheet. Using the beaten egg that was set aside, brush each candy cane, then bake 10 – 12 minutes. Cool completely. Now, treat your Mod Dog to a Candy Cane dog treat! May be stored in an airtight container.
