Why am I howling about Pumpkin Spice Surprise? It’s State Fair time in Minnesota, and that means everything edible should come on a stick. It’s not quite fall, but pumpkin spice is already trending, and frozen treats are always welcome in the heat. When I was approached by Bully Bundles to create a late summer frozen treat, I knew exactly what I would create!
My GBGV Life received a package of Bully Bundles Bully Sticks to create a late summer treat. My GBGV Life receives no additional benefits for barking about Bully Bundles products or the company. The opinions in this review are the honest opinion of My GBGV Life. Bully Bundles is not responsible for the contents of this post.
I love a good bully stick. The ones from Bully Bundles in my package are nice and thick, and six inches long. Bully Bundles makes their bully sticks from free-range, grass-fed South American cattle, there are no chemicals or preservatives, and they are made in a USDA approved facility. It’s hard to resist stealing one out of the bag! They are also helpful in promoting good dental health, which is super important!
Now to my Pumpkin Spice Surprise on a Bully Stick frozen treats. As with all my recipes, it is simple, but this time there are more ingredients, six to be exact.
To create the pumpkin spice, I simply add a small amount of cinnamon to the pumpkin, and mix it up well in a bowl. Plain yogurt is so white and boring, which is why I blend in a small amount of pure maple syrup to the yogurt. The syrup provides a nice flavor, and turns the white into a more off white color. Lastly, the cranberries need to be finely chopped. I don’t like to use a knife, so I put them in my chopper machine.
My silicone star pan is just right, because the molds are just right for our size of dog. The pumpkin goes in first and takes up almost half the mold. Diced cranberries are put in the middle of the pumpkin, creating the surprise when your dog bites into the frozen treat. The yogurt tops off the stars. I put these molds in the freezer for about half an hour to firm up the mixture.
After half an hour, my molds come out of the freezer, and I push my Bully Bundles Bully Sticks down all the way to the bottom of the molds. I then place the treats back into the freezer for about two hours until they are frozen solid. They look pretty tasty don’t you think? It must be time to pop them out of their molds.
Ta dah! Do they look amazing or what? Even my mom says they look like they would be super tasty! I think they look like caramel and marshmallow, but they are my Pumpkin Spice Surprises on a stick, Bully Bundles Bully Sticks, that is! A few cranberries seem to have started to peak out the sides, but I don’t think it will change the surprise.
While my photographer was adjusted her camera, I snuck over and took a treat off the plate to try! As I age, I seem to get more impatient when it comes to waiting for tasty foods.
