Spooky softies

Pumpkin softies for dogs

Dog in Halloween costume

  • Pumpkin shaped mini-cupcake tray or baking moulds

Method:

  1. Mix everything.
  2. Shape the dough by hands to get pumpkins or use moulds.
  3. Bake at 180 C for around 20 minutes or until golden.

Chicken and egg softies for cats

What you need:

  • Halloween-themed baking moulds
  • One chicken breast
  • Three eggs

Method:

Black cat

1. Cook the chicken breast in the oven - follow product instructions. Once cooked, take it out of the oven and let it cool down.

2. Whisk the eggs.

3. Cut the chicken breast into small pieces and mix together with the eggs.

4. Pour the mixture in your spooky moulds and bake for 15 to 20 minutes on around 180 C. Check if cooked inside by sticking a skewer in the middle. If it comes out clean - they're done.

All the ingredients in the recipes are safe for cats and dogs to eat but take care if your pet has any allergies or intolerances. Speak to a veterinary nutritionist or your vet if you're unsure.

We hope you try these and your pet loves them so they can have a blast celebrating Halloween with you this year.
