Okay, we don’t really have a zoo at my house. We have added two pets in the last four months, though. First we got a fish, as sort of a trial run for LJ to practice being responsible for something else. Then, two weeks ago, we adopted a rescue dog from our local Humane Society shelter.
Meet Roofus (yes, LJ named him and insisted on that spelling). He is an absolute sweetie with a bit of a mischievous streak when we aren’t watching.
It turns out that Roofus is a bit of a picky eater – perhaps he’s already caught that from LJ? So I went off to Walmart to find yummy snacks for the whole family (including Roofus) and a family friendly movie to watch for family movie night. We watched the trailer for “We Bought A Zoo” and everyone agreed that would be a great one to watch. As luck would have it, Walmart is running a special deal where you can buy any 2 Del Monte pet products and get $4 off of the movie! (Del Monte pet products are being featured in Women’s World magazine and Parade magazine. Del Monte fruit cups with a $0.50-off coupon are being featured in First for Women magazine)
My local Walmart had plenty of dog treats to choose from.
And all the supplies I needed to make my human treats as well!
See more of my shopping trip here.
Once I was back home, I went about making the treats. I’ve put directions on how to make them below.
Peaches and Cream Wontons
First, put the wontons in a muffin tin. You will need two per section and should put them diagonal to each other so that they overlap and form a star.
Push the wontons down into each section and lightly brush with a little butter.
Put them in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until the edges are golden.
Next, scoop out some of the vanilla yogurt into a bowl and add cinnamon to taste. (I like a lot of cinnamon in mine!)
Put a scoopful of the yogurt mixture in each wonton.
Top with your favorite Del Monte fruit – we used Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Peaches. Finish with a dusting of cinnamon on top! Yum!!
