Pumpkin Play Doh and Peanut Dog Treats

The best dog treat recipes ever no raw ingredients so its safe for little helpers to play with.

Peanut Poppers
4 cups whole wheat flour
2T baking powder
2 cups milk
1 16 oz jar natural peanut butter (creamy works best)I use Smuckers natural

Knead together (I just throw it all in a bowl and squish it together with my hands. Once it's pretty much mixed I give each child a hunk to knead)then roll out to 1/4 in thick or roll them into one inch balls and smush them down with your palms
Bake 375 for 20 min

This recipe is so easy and nothing that is raw so the kids coud play with it all day then bake it for the dogs. My kids have even been known to eat the dough.
it will make enough treats to fill a big freezer bag. I store in the fridge to keep fresh longer mine have kept for 2 months in the fridge. I had them mold on me once in a jar under the sink but I forgot about them for 4 or more months! We love to make these as Christmas presents to family members who have dogs.

Here are our festive turkey treats




My son thought it would be funny to use the people cutter and feed the dog people. I thought it was rather funny myself!

We also made pumpkin pie play doh. It smells so good.
You'll Need:

2 cups of flour
1 cup salt
4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 cup cinnamon
1 Tbsp. cloves
1 Tbsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. ginger
2 cups water
2 Tbsp. oil

To Make:

1. Mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar, and spices together in a mixing bowl.

2. Add the water and oil to the dry ingredients and mix together well.

3. Transfer mixture to a medium sized saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly.

4. The dough will begin to thicken and form. When it becomes difficult to stir and is more solid, remove from heat and carefully knead the dough. {Note: dough will be hot!}

5. When dough has cooled, have fun playing ~ this is great for the holidays!!
