Make the Muzzle
Press or roll out chewy chocolate candies. Make two crescent moons, then to snip the end of the “moon”. The shapes will resemble an upside down apostrophe. Reserve remaining candy pieces. Place one brown candy piece on frosted cupcake, making sure the points are at the top and facing toward one another.

Add a Nose
Pipe the cheeks with white frosting. It should look like an upside down heart without a ”tail". Place a chocolate candy, the size of a pea, in the center of the piped icing as a nose.

Create the Eyes
Using the same piping bag, pipe a small disk, slightly smaller than a dime, in the center of each brown candy piece, brushing the icing disk’s bottom against the cheeks. Place a small chocolate candy (or sugar pearl or chocolate frosting) in the center of each disk for the dog’s eyes.
