Beat butter on high for 30 seconds. Add sugar, beat until combined., scraping down sides of bowl. Beat in milk and vanilla. Gradually add flour.
Remove 1 cup of dough and set aside. Mix red food coloring in the remaining dough. Make one 1 inch ball and five 1/2 inch balls from the red dough. From the plain dough make 3/4 inch ball and four 1/4 inch. Attach them by just pushing the dough together, like picture shows. Add the chocolate chip eyes and buttons. After they are all assembled on a cookie sheet, bake them for 12-15 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes.
