The amount of ingredients you will need varies. If you just want to make one or two hamster treats, then you will only need one or two chew sticks, a tablespoon of peanut butter, and one or two tablespoons of seed and food mixture.
, This can be a messy process, so keep that in mind before starting.
, Then place the peanut butter covered sticks into the seeds and food, making sure to cover the whole surface.
You may want to lay the sticks onto the surface of the seed mixture, then grab some mixture in your hand, and then sprinkle the mixture onto the top side of the stick, this will allow you to make sure that all surfaces are covered evenly.

Freezing the treats will make them easy to handle for your hamster. Otherwise, they would be a gooey mess!
, To make treat time more stimulating, you can tie the treat up so that it dangles in your hamster’s cage. The hamster then has to do a little bit of work to get to it. This could mean the hamster has to be on its hind legs to get it or it has to climb in the cage to reach the treat.If you have made multiple peanut butter treats, keep the extras in the freezer! You want them to stay firm for the next time you want to give your hamster a treat.
