Monster Mashed Muttins

It's almost Halloween and that song "Do The Monster Mash" is in my head so it was no surprize I reached for the box of instant mashed potatoes when concocting this recipe. It was a hit with both the Kirbster and our current foster boy, Odie! In fact, they each received one muffin until they both began begging for another. So it appears one and a half is a good portion size for small dogs!
