What do you do with dog treat crumbs? They are in the bottom of snack bags and boxes all the time, but don’t you dare throw them out! I will show you how to easily turn them into something tasty!
Whether you have freeze dried snacks, cookies, jerky, or any kind of snacks, when the snacks are gone the crumbs remain in the bottom of the container. I can’t stand the thought of throwing the crumbs in the garbage, so I reuse them to make something yummy.
At my house we repurpose the crumbs into toppers, stuffed bones, and stuffed Kongs.
Freeze dried treats are scrumptious, but, they seem to have the most crumbs of all! At our house, we use them as toppers for our meals!
Heck yeah! Why buy more freeze dried toppers when you can add the crumbs. I feel sprinkling the crumbs on our food is similar to humans sprinkling spices onto their meals!
My sisters are big on stuffed bones and Kongs. You can make some easy stuffed ones with just a couple ingredients and some crumbs.
I like to use yogurt and peanut butter mixed with the crumbs. Mom says it reminds her of ice cream or yogurt with sprinkles. You can also add some honey or maple syrup if you want. Most of the time we mix, stuff, serve, and devour, but you can also freeze the stuffed bones or Kongs which makes them more like ice cream.
To keep the calorie count down a bit, I don’t fill the bones or Kongs all the way, but I do spread the filling around in the entire inside of the bone or Kong.
I don’t know about you, but all this talk about crumbs is making me hungry! Don’t you dare toss out those dog treat crumbs! Use them as toppers, stuff them into bones or Kongs and serve right away, or freeze for later! Simple and yummy!
