How to Make Icing for Dog Cookies

Prep Time 10


¼ cup Cornstarch

¼ cup Water

2 tsp Honey Food Coloring


Place your cornstarch in a small to medium bowl. Add the water a teaspoon or two at a time. When you reach about halfway through the ½ of the ¼ cup of water, stir in the honey. Then add the remaining water until you reach your desired consistency. (This will normally seem a bit thin at first before it actually hardens).

Divide the icing into as many bowls as you want colors. For example, if you want two colors, divide the icing into two smaller bowls. Then add a drop or more of the food coloring to the individual bowl and mix until you get your desired color for icing.

Apply as desired to cooled dog cookies/biscuits.

Refrigerate for best results.
