  • Decorate with conversation hearts for the ears, nonpareils for the eyes, red hot for the nose and licorice for the tail

  • I like to use mini marshmallows for this recipe
  • *use fresh marshmallows from a new bag – I find that if the marshmallows are stale, the treats become stale very quick and are harder to work with
