It’s Good Friday and Sunday is Easter. I absolutely love this time of year. The flowers start to bloom, the smell of fresh cut grass is back in the air, and families get together to celebrate. This year, I wanted to do something special for the dogs.
It’s a particularly special Easter for us because it’s Edward’s first, and his last one with us. We have been fostering him for almost a year and it’s now time for him to go to his forever home. We’ve met a lovely family in our town that recently lost their Yorkie, and they will be taking Edward home. So, this Easter is bittersweet, but I wanted to make it super special.
We all know the things we enjoy as humans; deviled eggs, potato salad, honey baked hams, and maybe a little cherry pie. But these things aren’t good for our four-legged friends. Things like plastic eggs and plastic grass are also a big no-no. This year I came up with a simple little treat that the Yorkies can enjoy – beef broth Easter eggs!
It’s a fairly simple concept, and it only takes about 8 hours from start to finish, with most of that time just waiting on the freezer. So, here we go.
Bone Broth Easter Eggs
Start with a broth. I used Beef and Bone Broth from the Honest Kitchen.
Mix the broth and stick it in the freezer for about 4 – 5 hours. Once it’s mostly solid, take it out of the freezer and start scraping the ice into chunks. I used a screwdriver.
Take your shaved broth ice and pack it into both sides of a plastic Easter egg. Pack it in as good as you can and then close the Easter egg.
Place the eggs back in the freezer and leave until they are solid. I left mine overnight.
Run a little warm water over the outside of the plastic egg, then open it up, and you’ll have yourself a nice frozen treat.
