Prepare a baking sheet or cutting board with waxed paper.
Melt the candy coating according to package directions giving special care not to overheat the candy. If the candy coating is overheated, it will be too thick. You can add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil or vegetable shortening to help thin the candy but do not add any other type of liquid as the candy will seize and harden.
One at a time, use a candy dipper to cover whole almonds in the melted candy and tap to allow the excess to return to the bowl. Transfer the almonds to waxed paper and allow to dry completely.
Next, dip each cookie into the candy melts to coat completely. Shake to remove excess candy and then place on waxed paper.
Immediately add the candy eyes and almond (ears).
Allow candy coating to harden completely. Then, using a toothpick, scratch a nose into the candy between the eyes, lines on the forehead, and lines over the eyes.
All to dry completely before packaging or serving.
