5 slices bacon

2 slices Cheddar cheese (3/4 oz each)

2 cups carob chips

1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter

 

 

 

 

Directions:

Line cookie sheet with foil. Spray lightly with cooking spray.

In 12-inch skillet, cook bacon over low heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Coarsely chop bacon; set aside.

Using 1 1/4-inch small dog bone cookie cutter, cut 15 dog bone shapes out of cheese slices. Set aside.

In medium bowl, microwave carob chips uncovered on High 30 seconds; stir. Microwave 30 seconds longer. Stir in peanut butter.

Spread carob mixture on foil to 1/4-inch thickness, about a 9-inch square. Immediately sprinkle with bacon and cheese; press lightly into carob mixture. Chill until set, about 15 minutes in freezer, or 30 minutes in refrigerator.

Remove from foil; break into 18 pieces. Store in airtight container in refrigerator for 5 days.

  • Hope you enjoy this recipe. We have been worried about Pet Treats from China that have been causing kidney and liver damage. We are trying to be more selective by purchasing only packaged treats that are labeled “Made in USA”, as well as baking homemade recipes.

    Let us know what you think.
