Valentine’s Doggy Treats!


Last night Tom and I toasted our beautiful new shower with some champagne and pizza. Yum. I have a hangover today but it was worth it. Sometimes stay at home date nights are better then going out date nights. I’m sure our children appreciated being put to bed at 6:30 also.

Our craft today is for our furry friends or our friends who’s ‘kids’ have four legs and require a leash. Here is your ingredient list:

IMG_0038-2 2 cups of flour

1 1/4 cups of cheese

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 cup of water

2 garlic cloves finely chopped (optional)

food processor/blender

wax paper/rolling pin


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

First you are going to put in all your ingredients besides the water and turn on your mixer. You are going to mix it until it looks pretty coarse but mixed.


This is what it will end up looking like. Now you are going to SLOWLY add the water while the mixer is on a slow speed until it forms a ball.


This is what it looks like once you’ve added enough water. You may not need the entire cup but its nice to just have a reserve to keep adding until it’s the right mixture.


Go ahead and roll your dough out on your wax paper until it is about 1/4-1/2 inch thickness. This dough is very moist so I found it was better to roll one way, pick up my roller and then go the other way rather then back and forth.


I cut my treats out in heart shapes using the same cookie cutters I bought to make my Valentine Soap. You put these on an ungreased cookie sheet and cook for 15-18 minutes.


And there you have them! Easy, cheesy dog treats for your favorite furry friend!


I put my treats in this cute little treat holder made with Wendy’s template here and Ramona’s kits ‘Best Friends’. These would also be adorable to sell for fundraising for your local SPCA or animal shelter.

Here is a cute word art freebie I made to match our theme today:
