Homemade Mini Peanut Butter ‘Mousse’ Pies

Every pet deserves a special treat. What better way to spoil yours than by making a DIY dog treat? This peanut butter dog treats recipe is a quick and easy way to treat your pet. (They deserve it!)

These mini “mouse” pies might be small but they’re packed with peanut butter—a favorite food among dogs everywhere! Not only is the filling made with all-natural, smooth peanut butter, but also the crust and topping is made with American Journey’s Oven Baked Peanut Butter dog treats. (Just make sure that the peanut butter you use doesn’t contain the artificial sweetener xylitol, which is toxic to dogs.)

No dog can resist the power of peanut butter!
