When it’s hot as woof the last thing you want to do is get in the kitchen and bake for your dog. These cool peanut butter jello easy dog treats are a quick, fun way to celebrate summer with your favourite pooch!

The other night, Koly, Fe and I were melting in our ridiculously hot living room, when I had a sudden craving for Jello. Ah, jello – the wiggly, jiggly cool treat that is a summer staple for kids everywhere. Well, kids and ME. I love jello and I love coming up with fun new flavours.

Even my dogs love jello. Last year, we made an old school jello salad for dogs. This weekend, I tried a new jello recipe that I thought the dogs would LOVE: PEANUT BUTTER JELLO EASY DOG TREATS. For the record you guys, I accidentally tasted the peanut butter jello and let me tell you:

Once you’ve tasted peanut butter jello, you can never UN-taste it.

…and I sure didn’t enjoy it. Luckily, the dogs think this is pretty much the best treat ever and they are happy to help me use them all up.
