Halloween Dog Treats

Halloween dog treats are as fun to make as they are to watch your dog eat!

Offer him two different decorated dog treats and see which one he chooses. Maybe he has a color preference.

Use dog treat icing like Fido's Frosting brand Royal Icing for Dogs and your dog biscuits will stand out and have them begging for more, like these gorgeous treats made by Bone Appetit dog bakery in Sandwich, Illinois:

Goblin It Up Halloween Dog Treats Recipe

What you need:

  • 1 package dog cake mix (about 11 oz = about 2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 package Fido's Frosting dog treat frosting mix - cream cheese flavored
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Mini-cupcake baking pan (10 -12 mini-cupcakes)
  • Mini-cupcake paper liners
  • 3D colored writers - black, brown, green
  • Edible orange glitter


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Place entire contents of package into mixing bowl. Add the oil, egg, and water. Mix well.

Pour into the cupcake liners and fill 2/3 of the way. Bake cupcakes 15-18 minutes (depending on oven). Poke a toothpick into the middle of the cupcakes - if it comes out clean, cupcakes are done. (Suggestion: check them all to make sure!)

Let cool.

When cool, cover the cupcakes with frosting. Do not prepare the frosting until ready to use it so it doesn't dry and set.

For easy frosting, use 1 package Fido's Frosting cream cheese frosting. (Just add water, stir and frost.) Mix in the cinnamon for extra flavor. Let set.

When the frosting is firm, use the 3D colored writers and draw an outline of a pumpkin on top of each cupcake. Fill in the pumpkin design with edible orange glitter.

Add Canned Pumpkin

For pumpkin dog treats, add 1/2 cup canned pumpkin to the dog cake mix and other ingredients above. Make sure it is 100% natural pumpkin and not the pumpkin pie filling!

Pumpkin is beneficial for pets. Its high fiber content can help with both constipation and diarrhea. Consult your veterinarian if this is an ongoing problem for your dog.
