Frosty Paws- Candy Corn Frozen Dog Treats

Fall is here and that means all things pumpkin!!! Now I don’t know about you but I love candy corn and thought Sahara could have her own candy corn too. Here in Florida we don’t exactly know what Fall is like, its still above 80 degrees most days so frozen dog treats are acceptable year round. These candy corn frosty paws are frozen dog treats made from only 3 ingredients! Coconut oil, pumpkin, and bananas are all very good for digestive health and a great source of different vitamins, so they make for a great treat.

Not only are they adorable and healthy but festive as well! You can keep them in the freezer  for 4 legged Halloween party guests. Or keep them a secret because you know what they say, what they don’t know won’t hurt them, more for us! Either way you will be the talk of the dog block with these treats!

What you’ll need

Directions

“Are you telling me those treats will be mine?”-Sahara

 

Grab your silicone ice cube trays and lets get started! If you have more than one tray feel free to use more than one. Depending on how many bananas you have and their size you could fill up a few trays, my one banana filled the top of my pink tray will a little extra left over for more treats!

 

 

 

Using a spoon pour coconut oil into the ice cube tray, making sure to cover the bottom and until about 1/3 of each mold is full.

Pop it into the freezer to chill and hardened, this should only take about 2 minutes

Using a can opener, open the can of pumpkin and give it a quick stir to smoothen it out.

Once the coconut oil is hard, take it out and layer on the pumpkin with your spatula. Fill about another 1/3 full leaving enough room for the bananas on top.

After the 5 minutes is up, use the fork and lightly mash the banana in a small bowl. If you mash the banana too early then it will turn brown before you freeze it. You can add a little bit of coconut oil to the bandanas if you’d like to make them a little more firm while frozen.Candy Corn Frosty Paws- coconut oil, pumpkin, bananas

Take the tray out of the freezer and top off with the mashed banana.

Then its time to pop back into the freezer one last time. I let them sit for a few hours to freeze completely while I was off doing other things but you could check back in an hour to see if they are ready. Now, it’s time to eat all the candy corn! You can transfer the treats to an airtight freezer safe container and keep frozen will your pup eats them in moderation!

  1. I loved the Doggy diy. I think that it is a really good idea. Although I don’t have a dog, one of my friends does, and I will be caring for the puppy while she is away. The puppy’s name is Lila and she is a small golden retriever. I will definitely make sure to make her with these treats so she can enjoy the festivity of the fall season alongside me!

    1. You don’t know what kind of fun you’re missing out on not having a dog ???? Okay, chances are you probably do. Thanks for reading!

  2. I love this! We are in Belize for several weeks so it’s hot here, too. I’m not sure I’ll be able to find canned pumpkin, but I bet mashed papaya would work just as well. I’m gonna give them a try. I shared this on CDPs’ FB page, too!

    1. Papaya sounds like a great replacement! The thing I love about this recipe is that you can change it to fit your needs! Like yogurt instead of coconut oil or your idea of Papaya instead of pumpkin. Just whatever you have access too! I know most placed get fall weather but we’re in some tropical climates and need some treats to cool off with still! Let me know how it works with the papaya!!

  3. I am always looking for ways to spoil my dogs. I will have to give this treat recipe a try on the weekend. I am sure it will be a big hit.

  4. I had never thought of making dog food at home but that’s quite smart actually! and the pup must be so happy!

  5. this is such an awesome way to have the puppies involved in holiday treats! i love everything about it. we don’t have a dog yet but we will be making things like this when we get our puppy!

  6. Fur babies deserve treats too, and I love that this is so perfect for Halloween! My rottie doesn’t generally eat bananas, but I wonder if this is something she would like.

  7. What a great idea! We’ve had a heat wave (isn’t it October???), so a cool treat would be welcome for my pup.

  8. What fabulous treats! My doggie would love to enjoy these goodies. I’d love to make some for him this coming week. 🙂

Woof! Leave us a comment!
