Peanut “Brittle” for Dogs

First, let’s be clear that did should not eat real, human, peanut brittle. There is far too much sugar, and the broken pieces are sharp and could cause internal injuries.

That doesn’t mean that our fuzzy friends can’t enjoy a peanut-y treat. Below are a few recipes for peanut brittle alternatives.

Two things to remember about dogs and peanuts are:

  1. Use unsalted peanuts and peanut butter.
  2. Read the peanut butter jar to ensure xylitol is not an ingredient as this is toxic to dogs.
