Rawhide Puppy Popsicle Recipe

So, the other night I was sitting on the couch eating a fudge pop when my foot was slimed with Hudson's drool. I looked down at he was sitting very still and staring intently at my fudge pop. I usually have the very bad habit of sharing my food with him, (have you SEEN his puppy dog eyes?! Don't judge.) but dogs can't have chocolate. So I just tried to ignore the puddle of Saint Bernard drool that was piling up on my foot and not make eye contact with him.

When I got down to the stick part of my fudge pop I started thinking my normal fudge pop thought, why can't they make an edible stick darn it? I'm too lazy to get up and throw this nasty thing away. And then it hit me. I could make Hudson his own popsicles with an edible stick! And so I added a few things to my grocery list and vowed that the next day I would make a Target trip to get my chocolate deprived dog the supplies for his very own popsicles.

1 cup Fat free plain yogurt
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon honey

1. In a medium bowl mix together yogurt, peanut butter and honey. Mixture should be smooth and 'custard like'
2. Soon yogurt mixture into ice cube trays
3. Let dog lick the spoon
4. Stick rawhide stick in middle of yogurt mixture
5. Freeze until hardened
6. Remove from freezer, pop out of ice cube trays, give to dog and accept your Puppy Mother of the year award.

Seriously. These are so easy to make. And now anytime I head to the kitchen Hudson runs after me hoping I'm going to get him another one. The best part about these? When your dog is done licking the crap out of the popsicle, he can eat the stick! That's Hudson's favorite part, anyway. ;) Enjoy!

P.s. Obviously it's not ideal for your dog to eat this in a carpeted area. We, unfortunately don't have much of a choice. In our new apartment the only rooms with tile are the tiny kitchen, entry way, and bathrooms. So that's something to think about before you give this to your pup.
