Earlier this month I celebrated the Ninja Face's 5th Birthday! Not only did we have a celebration for him at home but we also had a paw-tay at the dog park. Instead of making everything from scratch, I decided to use Puppy Cake mixes which I found on Amazon. These products had amazing reviews, so I thought why not try them? Well, I was so happy with how easy and wonderful everything turned out that I reached out to the owner of Puppy Cakes, Kelly Costello. I shared my posts with her and expressed how much I enjoyed her Puppy Cake - cake mixes.
When I asked if she had other products I could try, she was so sweet and sent me a sample of her Carob Chip Cookie Mix and Vanilla Puppy Scoops Ice Cream to try. Just like the cake mixes, this cookie mix was simple to make. Have you ever used the Betty Crocker cookie mix pouches? Its exactly the same but for dogs! LOVE! The dough was a bit sticky. Though I do not think it would have affected how they turned out. But I did add 1/4 c. of flour to the mix so it was easier to work with.
Normally I just have the taste tester that is Ninja. But this week we are dog sitting for a friend and their dog just happens to be Ninja's bestie from the dog park, Julian. Ninja LOVES Julian. I mean LOVES. He has been with us for two days and they play non-stop until they eventually pass out from sheer exhaustion and then start right back up again after a quick nap. So we now have 2 taste testers! They were both very excited to try the cookies. To be honest they are excited to try anything! The mix makes about 15 cookies. My batch made exactly 17 cookies.
I had some eager taste testers! After getting their taste on, they became some happy puppies who tried to sneak extra cookies from the dining table! Thankfully they had enough manners to at least wait until I had taken pictures for my blog. Such gentlemen. Isn't it funny how pups know when goodies are for them. I mean, I bake all the time and Ninja doesn't really notice. But he just knew, this time ... these cookies were for him!
Bottom line: The Puppy Cake Carob Chip Cookie Mix is a must buy and must try because your pup will love it and it's nice to spoil them plus it's super easy to make! Don't take my word -- take Ninja and Julian's eager and awaiting faces for another cookie! HA!
