Head & Snout
Shape one Rice Krispie treat into a ball about the size of a golf ball. Add one dollop of vanilla frosting toward the middle of the cupcake to hold the head in place. Place one half of a marshmallow, cut edge side in a dollop of icing, to act as the snout.

Add the Hair
Fit a piping bag with a #233 grass tip and fill with white frosting. Pipe frosting “hair” over entire cupcake, except the front of marshmallow muzzle.

Shape the Ears
Cut a second Rice Krispie Treat, cutting 2 small triangles as ears. Place at top of the Maltese’s head for ears, one ear at “11 o’clock” and the other at “1 o’clock”.
