Da Recipe:

Carob-Dipped Valentine's Day Dog Treats
·    1 egg
·    1/4 cup applesauce
·    1/2 cup beef or chicken broth
·    1 tablespoon honey
·    1 tablespoon molasses
·    1/4 cup cooking oil
·    2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
·    2 cups carob chips
Cooking Instructions
1.                 Preheat oven to 300 F.
2.                In a large bowl, combine egg, applesauce, broth, honey, molasses and oil. Gradually stir in flour.
3.                Dough should be stiff, add flour or water to adjust.
4.                On a well-floured surface, roll out dough into 1/4 inch thickness.
5.                Use a heart shaped cookie cutter to make shapes from the dough
6.                Place on lightly greased cookie sheets and bake for 30 minutes, or until the cookies are golden   brown.
7.                Melt carob chips in microwave or double boiler.
8.                Dip half of the heart into the melted carob.
9.                Place cookies on waxed paper and let stand until carob is set.



I checked 4 local stores for the Carob Chips and couldn't find any.  I ended up ordering them from a place called NUTS ONLINE.  They arrived safe and sound in 3 days.

I had to add quite a bit of flour to the dough to make it stiff enough to roll out.  But once enough flour was added, the dough was very easy to work with.

I didn't use 2 cups of Carob Chips as called for in the recipe.  It was more like just a little over a cup.  That was plenty to coat all the biscuits.

Amber and Max are sharing (only because I make them) the treats with the rest of their pack members.  They all really love them.  And the Carob Chips takes care of any chocolate cravings they might have

OK....Back to Amber!

Those treats sure look tasty.We hope Mom will make some for us too. The last time she made treats that called for carob chips, she had a hard time finding them too, but she said they usually have them at Whole Foods or a similar organic food store.

Happy Valentine's Day to all!!!
