Roll out black fondant and cut into strips approximately ¾ inch by the measurement of the cookie. Place fondant across the chest of the cookies like a sash, pressing over shoulder and hip.
Press white nonpareils into fondant sash.
With remaining black fondant, pinch a small piece and shape it into a tiny ball for the nose. Pinch two smaller pieces a roll them into balls for the eyes. Press into place on the cookie. If the fondant will not stick to the cookies, use a toothpick to gently drill a small hole into the place for the nose and eyes. Then put the fondant in the holes
