Roll cookie dough out to 1/4-inch thick. Use a 4-inch round cookie cutter to cut cookies, you should get 14 cookies.
Bake cookies according to the recipe or refrigerator dough package. Allow to cool completely on wire racks.
Spread the icing to cover your sugar cookie.
Drag your icing with the tip of a butter knife to create strokes of fur.
Next you attach the snout by gently pressing a vanilla wafer cookie into the frosting.
Add a touch of buttercream icing to the center of the wafer and attach the chocolate candy to create the nose.
Gently press the candy eyes into the frosting above the nose.
To create Boomer's ears place candy melts on either side of the top of the cookie. Spread or pipe some buttercream around the edges.
Finally, use an edible food marker to add Boomer's mouth.
Making the frosting "furry" is not a necessary step, it's just for fun. Feel free to just spread it on!
If you don't have candy eyes and prefer not to buy any, you can make them by melting white chocolate and dropping small circles onto waxed paper with a piping bag. You can use a miniature chocolate chip for the pupil! You can see how this is done on my bee cupcake toppers.
