Cakes & Bakes: Peanut butter & banana dog treats

peanut butter & banana dog bones

We must have published at least 100 Cakes & Bakes recipes. This is the first one that’s specifically for our canine friends. Peanut butter & banana dog treats are Fudge’s idea of heaven. They contains all the things he loves the most; egg, honey, peanut butter and bananas.

He hung around the kitchen the whole time I was making these – it must have been the smell of the bananas and the peanut butter. Torture when you’ve got a dog’s super-sensitive nose!

He must have known they were for him – “Are they nearly ready yet?” he was thinking!

It was worth his wait. He sat to attention putting on his best behavior as the treats were unveiled.

….and then the first taste. Wow! Things will never be the same in his little doggy world ever again!

Cakes & Bakes: Peanut butter chocolate fudge

peanut butter chocolate fudge | H is for Home

This isn’t a regular fudge recipe – there’s no need for a thermometer, no need for all that arm-aching stirring. This peanut butter chocolate fudge recipe takes 20 minutes to make… tops! Because of the high butter content (let’s not even mention the sugar content!), this fudge is best kept in the fridge.

It’s sweet, smooth, buttery and very, very naughty! It made two big jarfuls and there wasn’t enough room in there for that last piece – oh well, I guess I’ll just have to eat it then! ;-)

Fudge two ways

squares of plain fudge and rum & raisin fudge | H is for Home

The first & last time I made fudge I was about 12 years old. The only way I could get it to set was to stick it in the freezer for a few hours. It wasn’t exactly inedible, but it was bad enough to put me off attempting it again until now.

Just like our taste in ice cream, Justin & I differ in our taste in fudge. He likes it plain, I like mine stuffed full of fruit, nuts, chocolate and alcohol! To please us both, I made a normal portion of basic mix, divided it into two and made one half into rum & raisin fudge.

I used the basic recipe I found on the Carnation website. I’m already thinking of folding some of this fudge into some of my home-made vanilla ice cream – what do you think?
