Day of the Dead Dog Treats

By Kristy @mileydailyscoop
Can you believe Halloween is less than two weeks away? Do you dress up your dog for Halloween? We are always last minute here with the Goldens but somehow seem to pull it off just in time.
One thing we never leave for last minute is the treats! A few months ago I came across a Day of the Dead silicone mold and I knew it would make a fun and healthy Halloween dog treat.
Day of the Dead Halloween dog treats I love making these homemade frozen treats for the Goldens almost as much as they love eating them. It's an easy and quick way to get wholesome ingredients into your dog's diet because you know exactly what is in them. 
There are so many combinations of flavors you can use when it comes to these silicone molds. Today,  I decided to kick in up a bit and create three layers of the Goldens favorite food combos!

Triple Layer Day of the Dead Dog Treats

Before we get started, keep in mind that each of these layers will need to set up individually in the freezer. From start to finish these took me approximately 1 1/2 hours to make before the pups got their first taste.
