Get ready to spoil your pooch with a tasty homemade gingerbread man dog treats recipe that’s absolutely perfect for all the fall and winter holidays! Owning a pet is a funny thing. You love to spoil them, love them and snuggle them, but sometimes you just want them to calm down so you can have a break. I’m home alone with my pets a lot so I adore them but also need a little break from their wild antics at times, especially when I’m trying to work!

My favorite thing to do is reward their good behavior with a treat so the wild antics are few and far between. For example, if they go into their crate at night without causing a scene, they get a treat. If they don’t destroy the house while mother is working, they get a treat. Since the holidays are coming up fast, I decided they needed something extra special and different than the ones they usually get. Plus, I wanted to make it fall flavored because, well, there’s that spoiling thing again. Here are the homemade gingerbread man dog treats I ended up with! Make sure you print out the recipe card for later and check the video tutorial below.

  4. Once rolled out to about ½ inch thick, use a gingerbread man cookie cutter to cut out the treats.

  6. While treats are cooling, place a bit of heated peanut butter in a squirt bottle and use it to draw the eyes, mouth, and buttons, if desired. Make sure to not make the peanut butter too runny.

A word about the peanut butter: we’ve had a few readers write in with concerns about using peanut butter in dog treats. Peanut butter is safe as long as it does not contain xylitol. At this time, that list only contains 5 brands, and they’re primarily sold in nutrition stores or specialty shops. None of the “big name” peanut butter brands contain xylitol at this time.
