Whether you still need a gift idea for your dog, or you want to surprise your family and friends with a thoughtful present for their dog on Christmas, this homemade mason treat jar dog treat present is easy, and so much fun to make! Jem and Zoey say this gift is definitely “Dog Approved!”
Step 1: Buy Your Supplies
- 1 Pint Sized Mason Jar (I used wide-mouthed)
- Twine or Ribbon
- Decorative Fabric (optional)
- Bone-Shaped Cookie Cutter
- 1 Cup Flour
- 1/2 Cup Oats
- 1/4 Cup Cornmeal
- 1/4 Cup Parsley
Jem and Zoey were thrilled to see treat ingredients under the tree!
The person you’re giving this gift to will add to the recipe:
- 1/2 Cup peanut butter
- 3/4 Cup applesauce
They’ll need to add these fresh ingredients when they make the treats, because these ingredients won’t last in the mason jar!
Step 2: Combine Ingredients In Jar
Layer In The Mason Jar:
1 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Oats
Step 3: Decorate Your Jar
Cut a 5×5 inch piece of fabric if you’re using a wide mouth mason jar like I did, and place it between the layers of the mason jar lid.
You can print it on nice card stock paper, or even sticker paper to be used as a label on the jar rather than tied with the cookie cutter.
Punch a hole in the recipe card. Tie the bone-shaped cookie cutter and recipe card around the lid of the jar with twine or ribbon.
Step 4: Give The Gift Of Treats!
Such a simple yet beautiful present, and one that we will enjoy admiring under the tree until Christmas! I hope Jem and Zoey don’t go too crazy waiting until Christmas Day to bake these!
