Place one half of each large marshmallow on an angle for each ear (note: you might have to use a little frosting as glue or Toothpicks). Add colored chocolate candies for eyes and nose. Add two miniature marshmallows ( I Used Colored ones)for cheeks. Cut 6 small pieces of rope licorice for whiskers.
