Step 3

Divide the dough into three equal portions. Tint one portion red with Christmas Red icing color. Use Rose icing color to tint one portion dark rose and the remaining portion light rose. 

Step 4

Roll out dough, one color at a time, to 1/8" thickness. Using heart cutter, cut out and bake cookies (as directed in recipe). Let cool.

TIP: Keep in mind you’ll need two cookies per sandwich, so cut cookies in even amounts.

Step 5
Tape fox pattern to your cake board then cover it with parchment paper.
Step 6
Melt bright white, pink and red Candy Melts® candy, separately, according to package directions.
Step 7

Prepare a decorating bag with melted white candy. Cut 1/8" from the bag's tip. Following the taped pattern, pipe the inner ears. Immediately cover with nonpareils; then, tap off excess.

TIP: Use a toothpick to push candy into a triangle shape, if needed.

Step 8
Prepare two decorating bags separately with melted pink and red candy. Cut 1/8" from the tip in each bag. Use the melted candy to fill in the remaining outer ear. Chill until set, about 10 minutes. Reserve the remaining melted candy in decorating bags.
Step 9
Using remaining melted white, pink and red candy, pipe faces on half of heart cookies. Chill until set, about 10 minutes.
Step 10
Melt black Candy Melts® candy according to the package directions.
Step 11
Prepare a decorating bag with melted black candy. Cut 1/8" from the bag's tip. Pipe eyes and nose on faces. Chill until set, about 10 minutes.
Step 12
Prepare a decorating bag with tip 12 and creamy decorator icing. Outline the back of a plain cookie and then fill in the heart shape.
Step 13
Place a fox face cookie on top and insert the ears into the icing.
