Honey cream cheese dog treat icing recipe


  • One 8 oz. tub whipped plain cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Combine cream cheese and honey in a mixing bowl and stir until well mixed. 
  • Add cinnamon and mix again until all ingredients are evenly distributed.

Since we use whipped cream cheese instead of a solid block, this icing will be easy to spread.  Simply apply it to your dog biscuits or dog cake creations.

The one big problem with this type of icing: it is perishable. The treats should be eaten right away. This is because most homemade options need refrigeration or stay wet and will dry out if they sit too long.

In addition, cream cheese is a dairy product, so give it to dogs in small amounts.

Honey For Dogs - What You Should Know

Honey is a healthy, natural alternative to processed sugar. It is sweet, and some dogs like sweet tasting food. There is a difference between store-bought honey and raw honey that comes directly from the bee's hive. The store-bought honey is pasteurized, or heated, which gives it that clear appearance. But honey purists will tell you that the pasteurization process kills all the beneficial bacteria that exist in the honey and destroys naturally occurring enzymes that can be beneficial in alleviating allergies.

For this dog treat icing recipe, a small amount of honey is used to give it a sweet taste. It won't matter whether you use store-bought or raw. We are just going for taste in this recipe.
