How we made them: For the Sleepover Cupcakes you will need Laffy Taffy in two colors. Marshmallows. Jelly beans. Teddy Graham cookies. Red candy decors. Vanilla wafers and Teddy Grahams. Frosting. And of course, cupcakes!!!
First roll out the Laffy Taffy on wax paper. Next, cut a 2 inch square from the taffy. Trim a contrasting color of taffy into a 1/2 inch x 2 inch strip and give it a scalloped edge using a pastry wheel or zig-zag scissors. Place the strip along the top edge of the square.
Cut a marshmallow in half. Place one half on top of a frosted cupcake for the body shape. Place the other half above and perpendicular to the first half, sort of like a T shape for the pillow (see photo). Press two jelly beans into the frosting at the bottom of the body marshmallow. Now drape the taffy blanket over the body marshmallow and tuck it in at the sides.
To make the faces, use chocolate frosting in a piping bag to make hair and eyes on the vanilla wafer and eyes on the Teddy Graham. Add candy decors for the mouth on each cookie (a heart for the wafer a sprinkle for the teddy). Add a dot of frosting to the pillow marshmallow and attach the head. Add a dot to the blanket and attach the teddy.
