Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



We have a Chocolate Lab and 3 wee ones who just about jump out of their fur for these treats! I had some room left over on the baking sheet so I washed up and sliced some carrots and they turned out great. Heck...we like 'em too! Looking forward to using other veggies. Thank you so much for sharing!

A healthy and easy treat to make for your four legged babies. I think I cut mine to thin because the yams were crunchy and it only took about 2 hours. This was a test run and I will be giving these treats out as Christmas gifts for all the doggies in our family. Thank you Dorit! Made and reviewed for the Housewarming Tag.
