Don’t worry, carob is absolutely not toxic for cats, on the contrary, it is not only safe but also has many beneficial properties: it is rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber and much more. The ideal ingredient to make Easter even sweeter for your cat.

If you notice that the dough is too hard, add a little water until it is malleable. At this point all that remains is to make the Easter egg for a cat. How?
- Divide the dough into two parts;
- make one half of the dough adhere well to one of the two molds, leveling the edges well;
- do the same thing with the other half of the dough and the second mold;
- obtained the “two halves of egg” you have to cover the dough with parchment paper and fill them with dried legumes (these are used only for cooking, their weight will not cause the dough to “rise” during cooking);
- at this point it is time for cooking: insert the two molds in the oven, preheated to 180 °, and cook for about 20/25 minutes.
Time will pass in an instant. Remove the molds from the oven and let them cool, then remove the legumes and the parchment paper, and finally carefully “detach” the two doughs from the molds.
What’s left to do? Join the two parts to form the egg (help moisten the edges with water) and call cat: as soon as he sees the egg they will be “parties”.
