Puppy Dog Cookies
I’ve made my self a huge list of bento themes so when I’m feeling creative I can just look at the list and pick a theme, one of the themes I’ve chosen to do is a puppy dog theme as I just love the dog in a dog house Lunch Punch in the Critter Cutter set, usually when I get an idea I’ll make a list off the top of my head of what I could put in that would suit the theme but if I’m a little stuck for ideas I’ll Google or Pinterest for ideas which is where I came across the idea for these awesome puppy dog cookies that I am about to share with you, however the original recipe from Happy Home Baking required stuff I just couldn’t find or didn’t use regularly so I’ve made my own version of this recipe that worked a treat.
Puppy Dog Cookies
You will need:
1 batch of cookie dough
The cooking instructions for these little guys is the same as set out in the cookie dough recipe so its just a matter of decorating them.
I can be a tad OCD at times so I weight each ball of dough before making each cookie to be 30gms each.
I then pressed the ball of dough between my palms so it would spread out to form a large circle (ish) shape.
I then placed a few chocolate chips in the centre and gently pulled the sides up around the chocolate chips to form a ball.
Then I turned it over and had a nice smooth surface to create my puppy dogs face (some of the balls needed a little re forming/shaping)
I then stuck a piece of Milo cereal up the top on each side to form the ears and then place a chocolate chip in the centre of their faces to form a nose.
I then put the batch in the oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Once they were removed and had cooled down I melted some chocolate chips and put the mix into my food drawing pen and drew the little eyes on to each cookie.
And that was it I now have a super cute batch of puppy dog cookies that the kids (and the bigger kid aka Mr Neat 2 Eat) love!
