Berry Easter Dog Treat Recipe

Your dog may not be able to join in on all the chocolate goodies this Easter, but it doesn’t mean you can’t bake him up some treats to hunt! Our Berry Easter Dog Treat Recipe will make some-bunny happy when he finds them in his basket. If you want to decorate your treats like we did to ours, use candy melts, like the ones from Wilton. They come in a wide range of pastel and spring colors, and are safe for dogs to eat.
