Homemade Candy Cane Dog Treats Ingredients:

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup powdered milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 large eggs (set one aside for egg wash)
  • 1 tsp. Peppermint oil
  • red food coloring (optional)

Homemade Candy Cane Dog Treats Instructions:

Whisk all your wet ingredients together until well combined.

Add dry ingredients, one at a time, stirring between each addition to incorporate.

Knead dough on floured surface for 2-3 minutes.

Divide dough in half, make a well in one half and add the peppermint and food coloring-working it in and adding food coloring until desired color is reached.

Place both dough rolls back into bowl, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour to firm dough.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Cover a cookie sheet in foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Whisk egg for wash in a small bowl.

Remove dough from refrigerator, break each dough color up into an equal number of pieces- about a Tbsp. or so in size-depending on the size of the recipient.

Roll each ball into a small snake-like shape.

Work on a long sheet of wax paper creating candy canes to prevent sticking- dough will still be somewhat sticky and that is normal.

Twist one of each color together and bend the end to create a hook shape.

Place your “Candy Cane” on the foil lined baking sheet.

Brush each with egg wash.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
