Holiday Recipe: Puppy Love Candy Canes
Posted by Brooke Spater on 9th December 2016
- 3 cups whole-wheat flour
- 1/2 cup powdered milk
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 2 large eggs (set one aside for egg wash)
- 1 tsp peppermint oil
- red food coloring (optional)
- Whisk all 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 and divide in half. Make a well in one half and add peppermint and food coloring, working it in and adding food coloring until desired colored is reached.
- Place both dough rolls back into bowl, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hours 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.
- Break each dough color up into an equal number of pieces - each piece should be about 1 tbsp in size, depending on the size of the dog.
- Roll each ball into a small, snake-like shape. Work on a long sheet of wax paper to create candy cane and to prevent sticking - dough will still be somewhat sticky - this is normal. Twist one of each color together and bend the end to create a hook shape.
- Place your "candy cane" on a foil-lined baking sheet. Brush each with egg wash and bake 10-12 minutes.

Trying to decide which is better for your dog—a collar or a harness? The short answer is: You may need both. It really depends on the size and temperament of your dog and what it takes to maintain safe control of him.
A dog barking in the backseat of the car can be a real nuisance—and even a hazard—for human drivers. But for dogs, barking is a way of communicating. In order to put the kibosh on all that annoying barking, we first need to understand why our furry companion is barking to begin with.
