I did alot of research and asking around and found out that in dog bakery's they use white chocolate because white chocolate doesn't have the harmful coco in it. So you can get pure white chocolate (or white chocolate candy melts) and add food coloring. Don't use almond bark tho because its really bad for dogs. (I had a beagle that ate a few almonds and had seizures and lots control of her bladder and was never the same again. Grapes and raisins do the same thing to them) and then you dip them in the chocolate or spread it on and shake it gently from side to side to even it.  Then i used royal icing (made with 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons powdered egg whites, and a teaspoon or to of water) and piped it on.

I used to make awesome dog cookies for my dogs and puppies and they would go bananas for it!  They loved the cookies so much that whenever they saw the bag, they'd sit patiently in front of me and wait for me to give them a treat.  Here's the recipe:

Dog Biscuits


    * 2 1/2 cups sifted whole wheat flour
    * 1/2 cup dry milk powder
    * 1 cube beef bouillon, crumbled
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 1 cup cooked ground pork (I used ground beef)
    * 1 cup grated carrot
    * 6 tablespoons shortening
    * 1 egg
    * 1/2 cup cold water


   1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly oil two cookie sheets.
   2. In a medium bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, milk powder, beef bouillon, and salt. Add the ground pork, carrot, shortening and egg; mix in to the flour mixture while gradually adding water to form a stiff ball of dough.
   3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters, and reroll scraps until no dough is left. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
   4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bottoms of the cookies are browned. Allow cookies to set for a few minutes on the cookie sheet before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

My dogs are sitting on my lap and drooling Smiley. These look good enough for human consumption! Great job.

I've never heard the tip on white chocolate before, so thanks for the post. 

The treats look beautiful, and they look too good for a dog, and I've never heard the tip on white chocolate before. My Labrador cross "mongrel" Henry is going to be soooo grateful.
