Cooking With Fudge - Frosty Paws

Hi everyone, Fudge here!

Today I'm going to teach you all how to make a super delicious treat for dogs, Frosty Paws.

You've probably noticed that we have these wonderful frozen treats at some of our parties. Mom discovered these when she lived in a far off land called Maryland. The dogs that lived with her then had these a lot. Then she moved here so that we could have this big house and our own special yard to play in, but the stores here didn't have Frosty Paws.

For those of you who still can't find Frosty Paws in your stores, they're frozen doggy treats like ice cream. They come in these little cups so we can each have our own cup, no sharing. Sometimes little dogs like our Lucy just need half a cup, so Dad used to just chop the whole thing in half for her.

Mom has this great cookbook called 'Don't Turn Your Back - Cooking With Your Portuguese Water Dog' and inside is a recipe for Frosty Paws. Did you ever notice how good cookbooks smell? Samba ate one of Mom's favorite cookbooks once. She said it tasted like chicken parmesan.

Anyway, before our food store started selling Frosty Paws, Mom decided to make a batch for us and now I'm going to tell you how to do it so that you can all have yummy frozen treats on these hot days.

Here are the things you need: 32 ounces of plain or vanilla yogurt

2 mashed bananas

2 Tablespoons of peanut butter

2 Teaspoons of honey

A bunch of little cups

A blender

There are a couple other things you might need, too but I'll tell you about that later.

You put all those yummy delicious items in the blender and push the button. This is where the fun starts. You see, Mom had a new blender when she made these for us. She hit the blend button, but she hadn't put the top on tightly.

Frosty Paws flew all over the kitchen. It was on the counter and the walls and the floor. It was great. It was like a big fountain of Frosty Paws, a dog's dream come true. Mom said some bad words, quite a lot of bad words and Dad nearly fell down laughing. We were all very busy licking Frosty Paws off the floor, walls and the fronts of the cabinets. If I stood close to the cabinets, it dripped right onto my tongue.

The other items you might need are a lot of paper towels...

...and a mop.

Whether you lick your Frosty Paws out of a cup or right off the wall, they taste wonderful.

32 oz plain or vanilla yogurt
2 mashed bananas
2 Tbsp peanut butter
2 tsp honey
Blend with top on tightly, pour into cups, freeze, enjoy!

How often do you offer these treats?

I have to watch Stella's weight, so it would almost have to be part of a meal.

Looks good though!

HAHAHAH!!! Hi! I came here (with my mutant puppy sister) from the Blog Hop. I LOVED your instructions on how to make Frosty Paws. (There are actually stores that DON'T sell Frosty Paws? The horror!!!) Mom sort of cheats on the homemade Frosty Paws - she just puts yogurt in our Kong toys and sticks them in freezer until solid. While all the banana/peanut butter stuff looks really tasty, I like the quick turnaround time on Mom's version! But, yours sound mighty tasty - even the ones that are licked off the floor! ;-)

Oh, Fudge, you're too funny. Tell your Mom that I once started the blender with a spoon inside it. That sucker blew a hole in the plastic knob at the top of the blender jar's lid. Then, for the next 24 years, until the base sprung a leak, I had to get my hand covered with ick to keep the hole plugged every time I used that blender. So at least her mess was a one time deal!

We are writin' this recipe down. We know that hot, summer weather is just around the corner.

Why do you need paper towels and a mop when you have lots of dogs around?

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

Sam said...

Fudge, I'm giggling at your description of mom's malady in the kitchen! Poor Sue!

I hope you guys enjoy your treats.

Vivian said...

That's a really good recipe, and great way of telling it too, Fudge. I love the picture with Frosty Paw flying all over the place ;-)

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Fudge, have you considered trying to get your own cooking show? You already have a name that makes pawple hungry and you do have a way with a recipe. I'd watch for sure.

lotsa licks, Lola

We LOVE those too, much better than the store bought stuff.

Mom just puts ours in the ice cube tray and pops them out for treats.

We don't have Frosty Paws here so my mom makes them for me!
At first she made them with banana but I no longer like it. Now it is only the low fat yogurt with PB!
I love them!
I can imagine the mix all over the kitchen!
Happy weekend!
Kisses and hugs

We think Frosty Paws sounds like a good we'll work on our mom about it. Loved hearing about how you got to lick up all the spills from the Frosty Fountain. That sounds like sooo much fun!

How did I forget to comment? so - first what I want to know is the dog pictured on the cookbook related to Fudge?

Second - that looks good enough that I'd eat it! and I bet that mess was big fun. Beau would try to like the walls. He was trying to eat fresh granola off the cooktop on Sunday. Dogs! g

seriously do NOT understand why your momma would be using HBO words when she has a WHOLE lot of frosty-paws maids at her service. i mean, she probably didn't even have to lift a finger to clean up. I wouldn't have! LOL!

Hope you guys did a good job cleaning up! was it sparkling?
