Instructions:

Turn on oven to 350°F.

We will be making 2 doughs, a red one and a green one. For the red dough, take the beets and remove the skins. Juice them into a bowl. If you don’t have a juicer, you can use the blender. Only use 1/4 cup of the puree if blending. Mix the other ingredients together in the bowl until a dough forms.

For the green dough, juice the mint and the parsley together into a different bowl. Again, if you don’t have a juicer, you can use the blender and use 1/4 cup of the puree if blending.

Take 2 small balls of each coloured dough and roll them into 1/2″ inch snakes. Roll the long pieces of dough together and twist them. Cut into 4″inch or 5″ inch sections and curve them into candy cane shapes. You can make larger ones for larger breed dogs.

Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until hard.

Allow to cool before serving.
