Homemade Horse Treat Recipe: Canter Cone "Ice Cream" Cones
- 1 cup of sweet feed
- 1/2 cup of applesauce
- 1/2 cup of molasses
- 2 cups of flour
- 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
- Sugar cones
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Use a mixer to gently combine all of the ingredients.
The dough will be extremely sticky! Using a spoon, scoop the dough into the sugar cones (don't heap it up on the cones too much) and pack it down.
Dip the sticky "ice cream" portion of the cone into sprinkles, but don't add a peppermint until after you bake (regular peppermints will melt in the oven, which you don't want). Tip: if you use soft peppermint puffs instead, you can bake them in the oven and they won't melt.
There should be enough dough to make about six canter cones. Place them on a non-stick cookie sheet and put them in the oven for 10 minutes.
When you take them out of the oven, press a peppermint into the top of each cone while the dough is still soft.
Let them cool for a few hours before serving to your horse.
