Dishes that two-time are my favorite. Those that are both functional and fully edible, like dessert served in chocolate bowls, soup served in bread bowls, edible shot glasses and now, this double peanut butter style KONG. If you don't know what a KONG is (I didn't before Pierogi), it's a delicious distraction for dogs. It buys you time when you need to finish that one thing and your cute puppy just wants to play.
This treat is perfect for peanut butter fiends. The recipe calls for peanut butter in both the shell and filling and best of all, no cleanup is necessary...
To make the super peanut buttery treat, I followed this recipe by The Doggy Dessert Chef. The ingredients are common and easily come together to form a perfectly thick and sticky dough. To modify the recipe for this treat, I increased the water to 1 1/3 cups and cooked each batch for just 20 minutes. To achieve the cone shape, I used this mold and filled each cavity with about 3 tablespoons of dough.
When each batch (this recipe yields about 2 1/2 batches) of cones turns a golden hue, remove from the oven and allow to cool for just a few minutes. Then, carefully pop out the peanut butter cones first and then the inner baking pieces. Replace the peanut butter cones back in their cavities and use a long serrated knife to trim off the puffed tops.
Arrange all of your baked cones and allow them to continue cooling and hardening for several hours.
Now for the best part! Fill the cones with smalls treat, a little kibble or fresh fruit and then top with a smear of peanut butter.
These would also make cute gifts for new dog parents. Ahhh, I remember those early days ;)
