      Aww thanks Nicole. We have been having so much fun with these Dog Licks Recipes. I just love looking at them.

    Oh Kilo is so lucky to have all these delicious recipes to try out! They’re so cute, you almost don’t want to eat them – almost 😉

      LOL Kilo could not believe his good fortune when he was allowed to taste. Taking it away after a few bites and licks was a bit of a challenge but too much for one pug on a diet in one go- even though all low fat and low sugar ingredients. He loves ice cream, bananas, cookies, PB and now strawberries.

  • This is so clever! I pinned it to make later….the chances of that actually happening are slim but maybe one day my dogs will get as lucky as yours!

      You can just use ready made human or dog cookies (no chocolate or nutmeg for dogs) and peanut butter to make quickly.

  • Ok, that is AWESOME!! I really, really want to try this recipe!!

  • What an amazing DIY! Great work and that looks DELICIOUS!!!

  • Those are adorable! I was surprised that Kilo went for the strawberry first, I would have thought he was a peanut butter guy.

  • This is a dog treat? Very interesting! Thanks for linking up for Wordless Wednesday. Have a terrific week!

      Hi Cascia- thanks for stopping by. The Dog Licks Treats and Recipes are inspired by dogs and look like dogs but humans can eat them too. Many commercial cookies and commercial ice cream have more fat and sugar, and of course, you would not use peanut butter if there was any risk of allergies. Have a great week too. X Susie

  • Yumm love it, am getting fat just looking at these recipes – thanks so much for sharing

  • How adorable and healthy too! These would be so fun to make even though I’m not sure Haley would wait long enough to enjoy the artistic design before gobbling it up, haha!

  • Oh my gosh, these are even cuter than the Dogs in the Blankets recipe from a few days ago.

  • Yum! Sounds good enough for humans to eat.

  • I’m loving your new Dog Licks series, everything is so creative & delicious looking! I love ice cream sandwiches and this one looks irresistible! Thanks for sharing. My DIY Pinterest board is going to fill up nicely with all these great recipes of yours (- :
