Doggie Donut

This, ladies and gentlemen, is a doggie donut.

Admit it.  Were it not for the paw print cellophane, you may have reached for this "donut" if it were sitting on a friend's counter.   And for some, the paw print cellophane may not have mattered in the slightest.

Question:  Which is it?  Donut or doughnut?  

TLB doesn't care.  As long as it's made with carob instead of chocolate.  

Carob is pretty interesting stuff.  I tried to be vegan once and made some peanut butter cups from Alicia Silverstone's The Kind Diet (check it out - it's a great book).  Instead of using chocolate chips I used carob chips.  They were good.  In a hippie, vegan, gee-these-taste-a-little-different sorta way. 

Anyway, on gourmet dog treats like this one ($1.99 per treat), carob is used to create the "frosting."  

TLB gets a gourmet treat like this probably two to three times a year.  They're gone in about 1.5 seconds, but it's fun to mix it up with something special. 

What's with the ghost sprinkles?

Unfortunately, I don't have an ingredient list on this treat, so I don't feel right giving it a rating.  I think you can guess that TLB liked it! 

Have a fantastic rest of your weekend!
