Let's head back in to the Philosopher's Stone, Chapter Five - 'Diagon Alley' to see what's next:
"He started emptying his pockets on to the counter, scattering a handful of mouldy dog biscuits"
I'll admit I was a little stumped when I saw dog biscuits and wondered how to make them magical - but making them human friendly seemed like quite the magical challenge.
This human-friendly 'dog biscuit' recipe is a fun twist on a chocolate chip cookie recipe. The easy cookie recipe will be transformed into Halloween bone biscuits in a matter of minutes as they're shaped into bones and stuffed with a hidden chocolate centre!
Homemade Bone Biscuit Ingredients:
(makes 6 large biscuits)
400g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
100g golden caster sugar
100g dark soft brown sugar
1 tbsp milk
200g dark chocolate
Human Dog Biscuit Recipe Method:
To make your chocolate bone biscuits begin by mixing your dry ingredients together in a bowl - that's the flour, baking powder and salt.
In a separate bowl cream together the butter and sugar for 2 minutes until light and fluffy.
Add in the egg and milk and continue mixing until smooth. Scrape down the sides, add in the flour mixture and stir together on a slow speed until it forms a ball of cookie dough.
Wrap the cookie dough in cling film and chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours until firm.
Once chilled the cookie dough can be rolled on a lightly floured surface to about 1/2 cm thick.
Use a stencil or cookie cutter to cut out 12 bone shapes. Transfer 6 of these only a lightly greased baking tray.
Use a sharp knife to cut your dark chocolate into stripes and place these on top of the bones.
Take the remaining 6 bones and place then over the top of the chocolate, pressing them down to seal the cookie dough two layers together. (Wizard Tip! Use fondant tool to texture the top of the bone cookies or add any other details for decoration)
Once you're happy with the shape of the biscuits, bake in the oven at 180c (350F) for 10 minutes when the biscuits are just golden but still soft.
Allow to cool on the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack and allowing them to cool completely.
So there you go dog lovers - a human-friendly twist on 'dog biscuits' for you to enjoy. As they contain chocolate you should keep them out of reach of your dog - but hey, that means more for you!
