*To make watermelon puree: In a blender put chunks of watermelon and a small amount of water. Blend until smooth and has no more chunks, you may need to add more water as you blend.
Start by blooming the gelatin in a small amount of cold water until needed.
In a medium size bowl, add the watermelon puree and Peppermint Leaf and mix. Then microwave 60-90 seconds, careful to remove after, the bowl will be hot. Add the bloomed gelatin and stir until melted in.
Pour the mixture into a lightly greased container and put it in the fridge to set, 6-8 hours.
Gently remove the gummy from the container and cut into good size treats for your dog.
I hope your puppy enjoys as much as my dog does! And the Peppermint does wonders for doggie breath!

But every dog is different, if they cannot have or do not like cinnamon just leave it off.
