  • You need one chocolate cookie for each cookie. You may have to cut the cookie with a smaller round cookie cutter depending on how large you make your cookies. My mama bear cookies were a little small so I trimmed the chocolate cookie before I added it to the paw. Be warned, it will get a little messy.

  • Cover the tops of the cookies with frosting. You can make your own or buy a tub of vanilla at the store to make things easy.
  • Add the chocolate cookie and four chocolate covered raisins to the cookie while the frosting is wet.
  • Sprinkle the remainder with the toasted coconut and enjoy!
