Carefully remove the Titus Tentacle figure from the dough. This is best done with a broad knife or a spatula.

Preheat oven to 180°C. Leave the cookies to bake for about 10 minutes until golden brown. Note: If the tips of the octopus arms are slightly brown, the cookies need to be removed from the oven.

While the cookies cool, the chocolate icing can be melted. Have the candy pieces, sugar pen or white chocolate (for his mouth) and pastry brush ready.

Brush the Titus Tentacle cookies with chocolate icing and press the candy pieces into the liquid chocolate to form the eyes and suckers. Once the glaze has dried, paint a mouth with the sugar pen or white chocolate.
