In this recipe, we'll learn how to make a recipe from the book Disney Tsum Tsum Sweets Recipes pictured above.   As well as the characters pictured on the front cover, others include Winnie the Pooh, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck.

Melt the chocolates separately over a bain marie and pour them into separate sections of the cupcake case, about halfway in each. 3. Place Oreo cookies into each like so. 4. Cover the cookies with the remaining chocolate and chill in the refrigerator until set. 5. Once fully set, the final step is to decorate with our chocolate plastic, marble chocolate and chocolate pen.   Sully's purple ears are made with chocolate plastic.
