Cut the candy in half. Roll one half into a ball then into a flat oval for the pig’s snout. Cut the other piece in half and shape it into two triangles for the pig’s ears. Using the back of a wooden skewer, make two indentations on the pink oval for the nostrils. Then use the pointed end of the skewer to create the indentation in the ears.

While the candy coating is wet, set two candy eyes on the cookie, then add a snout.

Pop the cookie in the freezer for 3-5 minutes until the candy hardens.

Allow the cookies to come to room temperature for about 10 minutes, then draw on a smile using a black food coloring marker.
