Frost the cupcakes.
For each bear, slice off the bottom and top of a small white gumdrop. Reserve the midsection and discard the other pieces.
Next, slice the top off of a Crows candy.
Press it onto the top of the reserved piece of white gumdrop to create the bear's muzzle and nose.
Press the muzzle against the side of a large black gumdrop to create the head.
Use a kitchen skewer or toothpick to poke eyeholes in the head.
Then press a mini chocolate chip into each hole, using a dab of white icing to help hold it in place.
Slice off and discard the very bottom of a Crows candy to create a sticky surface. Then slice the candy in half from the top down to create a pair of ears. Stick the ears to the head.
For a neck, slice the top off another large black gumdrop.
Then set the head on top of the cut surface.
Place the assemble bear head atop a frosted cupcake, pressing it down slightly to stick it in place.
