Place smallest (2 1/2 in.) cutter from 4-pc. circles nesting metal cutter set on 9 in. x 1.5 in. non-stick round pan. Use melted light cocoa candy in a cut parchment bag to fill cutter 1/4 in. deep. Tap to settle. Chill until firm, then unmold. Let set on parchment paper-covered board.

Step 2

Make arms and legs. For each treat, use scissors to cut two large marshmallows into two pieces each for arms and legs. Use fork from candy dipping set to dip pieces in melted light cocoa candy. Tap to remove excess candy. Place on parchment paper-covered board. Chill until firm, 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 3

Make body. Wash and thoroughly dry apple. Push bamboo stick 2 in. into apple center, as you would for a taffy apple. Use stick to dip and roll apple in melted light cocoa candy; spoon candy over any missed spots. Tap to settle. Place on parchment paper-covered board. Chill until firm, 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 4

Attach ears. Use smallest circle cutter to cut 1/8 in. from edge of two reserved light cocoa wafers. Use melted light cocoa candy in cut parchment bag to attach ears to side of head, 1 3/4 in. apart with flat side of wafer facing front.

Step 5

Decorate candy details. Melt peanut butter and white Candy Melts candy, separately, according to package directions. Use green and black candy colors from garden candy color set to tint portions of melted white candy green and black. Use melted peanut butter candy in cut parchment bag to pipe inner ears and muzzle. Chill until firm, 3 to 5 minutes.

Use melted candy in cut parchment bag to pipe black dot eyes and light cocoa dot nose and outline mouth. Chill until firm, 3 to 5 minutes. Use melted green candy in cut parchment bag to pipe number 1. Chill until firm.
