We all know that chocolate is not safe for dogs, but thankfully – there’s this legume called carob that mimics chocolate, is safe for dogs and allows us to make them a homemade treat, easily that they will absolutely LOVE.

Carob mixed with peanut butter, peanuts and topped with dog biscuits makes a snap-worthy bark that you can make, break, bag and gift to your favorite furry friends.

Be warned: carob still has sugar in it and just like kids, dogs can get some energy from these treats! So, as much as they beg for them, try not to overfeed them!
