It’s beginning to taste a lot like Christmas! It may have something to do with our Orange Carob Dog Treat Recipe, a sweet treat made with carob chips and clementines.

Taking inspiration from a Christmas favorite, Terry’s Chocolate Orange, we decided to turn it into a dog-friendly holiday dog treat. To make it as jolly as possible, we used clementines, a seedless citrus treat you may find in your stocking. We’re sure that your dog will unwrap these gifts with glee!
