  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, softened butter and egg until soft dough forms. Shape dough into 9x1 1/2-inch log. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate 30 minutes.
  • 2
    Remove plastic wrap. Cut dough into 32 slices. Place slices on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 3
    Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Meanwhile, slightly flatten 32 marshmallows.
  • 4
    Remove from oven, and top each cookie with marshmallow. Return to oven, and bake 1 to 2 minutes or until slightly softened. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 5
    Meanwhile, on microwavable plate, microwave 1 strawberry-flavored chewy fruit candy uncovered on High 10 to 15 seconds until soft but not melted. Flatten candy with fingers to 2x2-inch square. Cut into 8 equal strips. Twist strips into corkscrew tails with one tapered edge. Repeat with remaining 3 candies.
  • 6
    In medium microwavable bowl, tint frosting with food colour to desired shade of pink; stir until well blended. Microwave uncovered on High 10 to 15 seconds or until soft but not translucent.
  • 7
    To make pig butt, frost 1 cookie with frosting. Attach 2 jelly bean halves, cut sides down, to bottom of cookie for feet. Sprinkle top of cookie with 1/4 teaspoon decorating sugar. Attach 1 corkscrew tail to centre of cookie. Repeat with remaining cookies.

Expert Tips

  • Use a very sharp, clean knife to cut the jelly beans in half.
  • Microwaving the frosting makes it easier to spread over the marshmallows on the cookies.
  • It does help to flatten the marshmallows slightly before frosting if they seem too puffy.
