Dog Easter Egg Recipe
This egg makes an ideal Easter-themed treat for your dog, and also works as an excellent gift for any dog-loving friends. They are easy and affordable to make, and dogs love them! Vary the amount of carob you use according to the size of your egg mould. You can fill your dog’s egg with a variety of treats. Cooked chicken or mince, rice with gravy, or M&C Yogurt and Banana Treats would all work well. Also, why not experiment a little and try using Hatchwells Tasty Trio Bars to create an egg with a marbled effect?
What you will need:
- 50 – 100g of carob (or 2/3 packs of dog chocolate drops)
- A little butter
- Egg filling
- A medium saucepan
- A heatproof glass bowl
- Easter egg mould (available at most kitchenware or craft shops)
- Wooden spoon
- Break up the carob into small chunks and place in the heatproof bowl. Fill saucepan with water and place the heatproof bowl over the pan. Warm the water gently to melt the carob.
- Lightly grease the inside of the Easter egg mould with the butter, then thinly spread the melted carob around the mould. Set aside a small amount of melted carob for step 5.
- Chill the egg halves in the fridge for two hours.
- Once the egg halves are fully set, fill one side with your choice of tasty filling.
- Spread the reserved melted carob around the edge of one half of the egg, then stick both halves together. Hold in place for a couple of minutes until set.
- Trim any rough edges, then wrap the egg in some cellophane and tie with a ribbon. Keep the egg in the fridge if you have used fresh ingredients for the filling.
If cooking is not your thing, remember, Groomers also stock a number of Easter themed treats for your dog, including Easter eggs and hot crossed buns. Remember to feed your dog his treat outside to avoid any mess!
