Introduction: Extreamely Easy Mouse Treats

Hello today I'm going to show you how to make a extremely easy treat for your mice or similar rodent.

Step 1: Nut Cone

You're going to need a Strobilus from the common Pinophyta which in English means you will need a conifer cone which are completely free given the landscape you live in.

Step 2: Flavors and Toppings

Next you will need the ingredients that are going to make our normal pine cone (which mice love anyways) into a tasty treat that costs next to nothing.

The items you will need are honey, then just about anything that will stick to it.

I like using tea leaves from tea bags because they're crazy cheap and it lets your furry critters enjoy foliage from the land of the orient.

You can also use anything small enough to stick to the side of the cone, like barley or another small similar type of seed.

I have also used the breakfast of champions as well.

Step 3: Essentials

Basically make sure you have these two things and a healthy imagination and you should be all set.

Step 4: PreDip Preperations

Next crush up everything in a small dish in order to make it easier to apply it to the cone.

Step 5: Glazing

Next add honey to the pine cone, this can be done with fingers, a tool, or gravity.

Or you could add it to your mixture either way is fine.

Step 6: The Spread

Roll your pine cone in your substance thoroughly.

Then let it dry for about 5 minutes so the honey isn't as runny.

Step 7: Finally

And you're done, and have just made a tasty treat that your furry friends will love.

Are caffeine and sugar good for mice?

Everything in moderation should be fine.

I look at your pictures and think that for a mouse who's natural-diet doesn't contain free-sugars, that the whole cone will upset it's biology (not that I think a mouse would live long enough to develop a diabetes-type condition).
What caffeine does to mice who already have high heart-rates I don't know.

My mice are pretty chill, I think they'll be fine.
