02. Step Two – Spread Green Food Coloring

Seal the bag and start shaking. Massage the coconut around with your hands until the color is distributed and the coconut is green. If you’d like a deeper green color, add more food coloring and repeat.

03. Step Three – Make Cupcake Frosting

*Optional! Free free to use a premade frosting instead.

In the bowl of stand mixer, combine the butter and salt. Beat the butter for 3 minutes, until very creamy. Add ½ of the powdered sugar and mix on low speed until combined.

Add the remaining powdered sugar. Mix on low speed until combined. Turn the mixer speed up to medium-high, and blend until the frosting is very light and fluffy – about 5 minutes.

04. Step Four – Decorate Easter Cupcakes

Frost each cupcake and stick 2 candy eggs in the center of each.

Roll the edges of each cupcake in the green coconut so the “grass” sticks to the edges of the frosted cupcake.

05. Step Five – Add Easter Basket Handles Using Red Vines Licorice

Cut Red Vines Twists in half. Using the halves, bend into arc shapes.

Stick the arcs into the frosting on top of the cupcakes to create your handles.
