Check out this adorable paw print snacks recipe and the Sunny Day Welcome to the Pet Parlor DVD from Nickelodeon! If your child is obsessed with everything pet related, they are going to love making these snacks and watching the latest DVD available from Sunny Day.
Paw Print Snacks Recipe
So, let me be clear, these paw print snacks are dog-themed food for humans – not treats for your dog. There are so many puppy themed toys out right now that you can tell dogs and cats are popular with younger kids. These snacks are a fun after school treat for any child that loves their dog or cat.
Of course, you can take this opportunity to encourage your child to join you in the kitchen to make these paw print snacks. So, you won’t need the oven at all for these snacks. But, there will be some stovetop use. So, if your child is too young to be near the stove, you can do that part and let them help with the rest.
These paw print snacks are basically crispy rice treats. You will make the outside part from regular crispy rice cereal. You will make the inner portion from chocolate crispy rice cereal. There are a few mini chocolate chips placed on top to look like nails. And, then they are cut out with two different sized paw print sized cookie cutters.
How to cut out a paw print design
To cut out the paw print snacks, you will need two different sized cookie cutters. The larger one will be for the snack. You will use the smaller one for the paw print design inside the larger paw. You will also need a 13 x 9 baking sheet covered with waxed paper. So, you will press the rice/marshmallow mixture into the pan. And, then use the cookie cutters to cut out the paw print design. Scroll down for the full directions and printable recipe.
And, while you’re making these fun paw print snacks, make sure that you put on Sunny Day Welcome to the Pet Parlor on DVD! You can find it on Amazon. While you’re there, get the larger cookie cutter and then the smaller cookie cutter from Michaels. Feel free to experiment with your own sizes.

- Use smaller paw print cookie cutter to cut treats from the cocoa crispy treats.
- Then, use the cookie cutter to remove the middle from the regular crispy treat. Push the cocoa crispy treat into the middle of the regular crispy treat.
