Potato WrapIt Mix Uses and Recipes

Storage of Dry Mix:

Always keep the WrapIt® mix dry. Small amounts of moisture decrease shelf life and may cause mold to grow. Store sealed in its packaging in a cool dry place. Do not measure with a wet measuring spoon.


One batch makes enough dough to wrap 1-2 capsules or 2-4 tablets (based on sizes of Greenies® Allergen Pill Pockets).

Potato WrapIt® Recipe:                                             

3 teaspoons Potato WrapIt® Mix            

1 teaspoon water

Mix and knead until the dough forms. The dough should be the consistency of Play-Doh®

Too Dry: If the dough is too dry or crumbly add a drop or two of water.

Too Sticky: If the dough is too sticky, allow it to sit for two minutes and re-knead. If it is still sticky add a small amount of the dry pill mix.


Pinch off a small amount of dough and wrap around the pill. It is best to only make the amount of dough you will use in 2 or 3 days.

Storage of Dough:

The mixed dough can be stored at room temperature in a sealed bag or container for up to 2-3 days. Dough may also be refrigerated in a sealed bag or container for up to 5 days. Remoisten refrigerated dough by kneading in a few drops of water.

If dough has mold or a noxious odor, do not use it!


Soft Training Treats:


9 teaspoons Potato WrapIt® mix

3 teaspoons water

Mix and knead until the dough forms. Roll into ½ inch balls and use raw within 1 day or bake.

If baking, squish the balls with the back of a spoon to about ¼ inch thick.

Bake at 350°F for 3-5 minutes.

Store cooled treats in a sealed bag or container and use within 3 to 5 days. 

Do not use dough or treat if it smells bad or has mold on it.

Flavor Topper for Dog Food:

Dry:  Sprinkle some of the dry mix on your pet’s food.  Sometimes this is enough to entice your pet to eat bland dog food.

Sticky like Peanut Butter for Hiding Pills or Distracting Your Pet


3 teaspoons dry Potato WrapIt® Mix

2 teaspoons water

Mix until it is the texture and stickiness of peanut butter.  Some pets take pills better if the dough is sticky.

Peanut butter is often used on a spoon or inside a Kong to distract your dog when you trying to clip nails, give shots, etc. It is commonly used in fear-free facilities.
