I know, I know … it’s not terribly healthy, but giving our beloved Stella a homemade peanut butter and bacon dog treat every now and then is a way for me to vicariously enjoy two of my favorite foods without the calories (for me, anyway).
My daughter Katie has been making these delightful doggie treats for a couple of years now and to say that Stella gets excited when she smells them cooking is an understatement. How does she know that they’re for her??? I dunno, but she does. Katie uses a very small heart-shaped cookie cutter for Stella’s treats; she’s already packing more than a few extra pounds, so we must keep her treats to a minimum (Stella that is, not Katie).
Try the recipe and let me know if your dog is as crazy about them as mine is!
