Sounds like a neat idea, have never done one so I wouldnt be much help but any ideas w/b great, occasionally I help out at a pet fundraiser (geared mostly to ppl food) but anything easy and dog (or cat) related w/ great too ('easy' and 'fast' being key words), the small PB ones sound really good (the others do too but are a bit more work)

we do a variation of these cookie treats using vanilla wafers, creamy peanut butter, and then dipping them in melted chocolate. we use the dark semi-sweet baking squares, and melt the chocolate in the microwave. we put wax paper on a cookie sheet, and then put the dipped cookies on it, and place in the freezer for quick freezing.

these tasty treats takes less than 5 minutes. once they are frozen we then drop them in freezer bags, and keep them in the freezer until we want one. a few minutes thawing, and they are perfect. we like them cold. it's like a peanut butter cup cookie. we're also thinking of trying them with homemade almond butter or cashew butter

super easy. we don't make it often because we love raw cashews and almonds.

drop a handful (or 1 cup depending on how much you want to make) of raw unsalted cashews or almonds in food processor. Pulse nuts into a chunky or smooth powder, then drop in some honey and dash of salt, finally while pulsing slowly drizzle walnut oil until desired consistency. Experiment with amounts of honey depending on sweetness preference. We love the taste of nuts so we go light. We also have made this as gifts for foodie friends, and they love it. Remember though... no preservatives in this recipe. But it is delicious, easy to make, and easy to adjust ingredients. We like walnut oil, but you can probably experiment with that too.

enjoy

If you don't find it in the peanut aisle, check the health food section if your grocery store has one.

My mom always made these at Christmas. She used white chocolate and while still wet add some red and green sprinkles. So simple but soooo good. It's something kids can make on there own to give as a gift and they feel so proud because the know how good it is. We would put them on a clear plastic little plate with a red paper dollie and wrap in colored plastic wrap tied with a pretty ribbon.
