Laffy Taffy Frosting

•10 pieces of strawberry (I've also used the fruit punch ones) Laffy Taffy candy (the fun sized ones)
•2 Tbsp. heavy cream
•1 cup butter, room temperature
•1-2 cups powdered sugar

1. In a small sauce pan, melt the taffy and the heavy cream together stirring until the mixture is smooth. Remove from the heat to cool.

2. In a mixing bowl, whip the butter until smooth. Mix in the powdered sugar, a half cup at a time, whipping until fluffy. Then add the melted and cooled laffy taffy a spoonful at a time. You don’t want it too thick. If needed, place it back on the stove for a few seconds to soften it just enough. After each spoonful of the laffy taffy, turn the mixer up to high and whip the frosting until it’s fluffy. You can also add a little pink or red food coloring to get the desired shade but I was happy with the color as it was.
