Treats for Tazewell: Chicken Broth Coins

Make your own dog treats! Chicken Broth Coins, from My Utensil CrockThis week was a total blur.

To rehash just a sampling of the goings-on: lots on tap at work, full social calendar, and – surprise! – a new indoor wading pool appeared in my apartment! Don’t worry, new flooring is currently being installed, and I am hopeful that in the future, the water will stay in the pipes.

As I look back at the week, I see that I completely missed National Dog Biscuit Day on February 23! How did this happen?! How is this not a federal holiday?! Interrobang-level outrage.

In belated honor of this fine day, let’s talk about these Chicken Broth Coins that I made for Tazewell Brown during Snowzilla.

This pup-friendly recipe is so easy to mix together from a few ingredients you will probably have on-hand. You can roll them out and cut them into any shape. If you are like me and don’t own a rolling pin, you can get creative.


I chose the smallest cookie cutter from my set of concentric-circle-cookie-cutters. As I mixed the dough, it didn’t seem like a huge batch, but the ~1″ cookie cutter made over 70 coins! You can, of course, use any shape or size cookie cutter that you like.

These are a few of Tazz’s favorite things. #hedgehog

Like with all baked goods, Tazz likes to wait for these Chicken Broth Coins to cool before crunching away. That isn’t a cute way of me saying that you should wait for them to cool before feeding them to your dog. Tazz actually turns his head away when food is not at a temperature of his liking. I have to microwave his marrow bones for a few seconds to take the edge off, too. {I am very well-trained.}

During Snowzilla, Tazz and I were in and out of the building several times a day for walks and frolics. And so were his neighbor-dog buddies, so I put plateful of these coins at our front desk, to break up a bit of the monotony.

Chicken Broth Coins, from My Utensil CrockIf you bake the Chicken Broth Coins until they are completely dried through and crunchy, you can keep these treats in an airtight container and not worry about refrigerating them. It doesn’t hurt to refrigerate them after a few days though (or if they are softer when you take them out of the oven). They will last a few weeks there.

These treats were the least I could do to thank the best blizzard buddy ever.

If you are going to be home-bound during a snowy weekend, I recommend getting yourself a Tazewell. Well, not this Tazewell, he is taken.

The origin of this recipe is unknown. I have had it on a piece of paper, with no attribution noted, for a few years! Happy to send you a picture of the paper if you think you know its roots.
