Barkin Bacon Bites Dog Treats

Kirby has a sweet tooth so I like to make him sweet tasting treats. However, he loves the flavor of meat the most.  I was in the mood to bake, not to mention there wasn't a treat left in my house.  Searching my pantry I discovered a bag of Hormel Real Bacon and thought why not? Here's my latest concoction using bacon and ingredients I had on hand.
