Making a dog Easter egg

 

Don’t be tempted to share your Easter eggs with your canine friend as chocolate is toxic to dogs. Follow our step by step guide to making your dog an Easter treat that is safe for him.

You will need
Several packets of doggy choc drops
An Easter egg mould
A saucepan
A bowl
Spoons

Step 1: Place the chocolate drops into a heatproof bowl. Fill the saucepan with water and place the bowl on top. Warm the water gradually and stir the melting chocolate.

Step 2: Lightly grease the egg mould and spoon the melted chocolate evenly around it. Place the mould in the fridge.

Step 3: Once the two halves have set, fill one side with some of your dog’s favourite treats.

Step 4: Spread melted chocolate around the edge of one half of the egg and stick the second half in place.

Step 5: Once cool, trim away any rough edges and wrap the egg in cellophane and tie with a ribbon. You could also make an extra egg for a friend’s dog too.

REMEMBER! Dog-safe chocolate is a treat and should only be fed to your dog in small amounts at a time.

Happy Easter!
