I was so busy making The ManFlesh some gifties for Valentine's Day and crafting things for a Valentine craft swap with some friends, that I almost forgot about my Beastie Grrrlz!   Shocked  Oh, no!  But I had picked up this candy mold at a used art supply store last summer with them in mind, so I busted it out and made them some heart shaped candy!



They're unsweetened carob and white chocolate (which isn't chocolate at all) so they are safe for dogs.  It's still a rich treat so I break each heart into about 4 pieces and give them no more than 2 of those pieces/day.  Dogs like to savor treats, anyway, as anyone with a dog can confirm.   Roll Eyes



Here's a close up of the kitty on their treats!  I melted carob first, applied it carefully and yet not at all neatly to the cat, then cooled them in the fridge.  An hour or so later, I melted the white chocolate and added it on top, then chilled again.  Our kitchen is quite warm and white chocolate has a low melting point, so I keep them in the fridge.

I bet the girls love them! Plus, if you get hungry, you can nab a piece for yourself.

Thanks!  I'm lucky in that my girls receive with enthusiasm pretty much anything presented as a treat

I like carob fine, but this unsweetened stuff, let's just say the ratio of white choc to the carob makes it palatable.
