Now we all know dogs can’t have chocolate at Easter, so today I’m sharing with you the fabulous Sweet Chops Bakery recipe for Doggie Easter Eggs made exclusively for pooches!
With the Sweet Chops Hound Hunting Easter Egg Kit all you need is a stove top to melt your carob drops, and a fridge to set the eggs in! Could it be any easier? Here’s how to create some Easter sweet treats for your favourite fluffy.
DOG FRIENDLY EASTER EGGS – YOU WILL NEED
Sweet Chops Hound Hunting Easter Egg Kit*. Buy from their online store.
Mixing bowl, small saucepan, teaspoon and small butter knife.
* Kit includes egg mould, foil wrap & your choice of yoghurt or carob drops.
Melt the yoghurt or carob drops in a bowl over very low heat.
Using a teaspoon, fill each cavity with the melted yoghurt or carob drops.
Gently tap the mould on the bench surface to spread and fill the cavity evenly. If you’ve overfilled the cavities, use the flat edge of a knife to scrape the excess back into the bowl.
Refrigerate until set (approx. 20 mins). When set, the egg halves should easily slide out of the mould. Set aside.
Repeat steps 1-3. Place a solid egg half on top of each cavity so when set, the two halves will be joined.
Refrigerate until set. Gently remove the solid eggs from the mould.
Wrap your fabulous new Easter Eggs in foil* for pretty presentation!
* Do not feed foil to dogs. Unwrap each egg before feeding to your pooch.
Makes 25 eggs.
