    Ingredients


  • 1 1/2 c almond meal

  • 1/2 c powdered sugar

  • 2 T Stonyfield Organic Greek Plain Nonfat Yogurt

  • Mini chocolate chips

  • Red licorice

  • Sliced almonds


Preparation

Step 1

Mix almond meal and powdered sugar together.


Step 2

Slowly add the yogurt one tablespoon at a time, until it becomes a dough. (If you are not using right away, wrap into wax paper and put in an airtight container or plastic bag and refrigerate up to a week. When using, bring to room temperature. )


Step 3

Pinch about a ½ tablespoon of dough. Shape into a ball. Pinch one end to make a roundish triangular shape. At the end of the triangle put a chocolate chip for the nose. On top put 2 chocolate chips on either side for the eyes and right on top 2 sliced almonds for the ears. On the end secure a piece of red licorice cut to make a tail.


Step 4

These little creatures can be eaten right away or saved up to a week in an airtight container in the fridge. You can use them on your holiday cookie platter or on cakes.
