    3 cups all purpose flour
    1/2 cup nonfat powdered milk
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1 cup warm water
    1 chicken bouillon cube
    2 large eggs
    2 tsp red food coloring (see tips)
    1/2 tsp peppermint oil flavoring (optional)
    1 large egg (for an egg wash)

Directions ♥

    Whisk together the flour, powdered milk and baking powder.
    In a small bowl, pour the warm water over the chicken bouillon, stir until dissolved.
    Whisk the eggs into the chicken water.
    Form a well in the dry ingredients, pour in the wet ingredients.
    Stir until thorougly combined.
    Knead the dough for about two minutes.
    Add more flour until the dough is no longer sticky.
    Seperate the dough in half.
    Form a well in one of the balls of dough.
    Add the food coloring and peppermint flavoring.
    Wearing food safe gloves, knead the coloring and flavoring throughout the dough.
    Cool the dough in the refrigerator for 2 hours or in the freezer for 30 minutes.
    Preheat the oven to 350° F
    Divide each ball of dough into tablespoon sized balls.
    Gently roll each ball into a "worm" shape, letting the dough rest when needed. Each strip should be about 5 inches long.
    Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
    Twist one plain strip with a red strip, and curl the end to shape a candy cane.
    Place on the baking sheet.
    Whisk the extra egg in a small bowl.
    Using a pastry brush, thoroughly coat each candy cane with the egg wash.
    Bake for 10 minutes.
    Cool completely on a wire rack.
Storing - Our free dog treat recipes do not contain preservatives, so they will need to be refrigerated. These dog candy canes will keep fresh for two or more weeks in the refrigerator. They also freeze beautifully. Keep them in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Yield - If you roll out 5 inch strips of dough, and twist them together, you should yield at least 20 sugar free dog treats.

Merry Christmas Love Gia! ♥
