Take two chenille stems and fold them in half. Pinch and twist the bottom half inch to make a tail. Set aside.
Place the treats in the zipper bag. Press out all the air and seal.
Separate the treats into two “wings” and pinch the bag together in the middle.
Slide the bag into the opening of the chenille body. Wrap it around the top and twist until it holds tight.
