These are a flash back to my childhood. I remember shaking coconut in a Ziploc bag with green food coloring until it all changed color, then enjoying every last bite of my cupcake! I hope you do too!
Start with your favorite flavor cake mix, vanilla, strawberry or milk chocolate are great choices. Bake cup cakes, cool and frost with store bought icing or use the Butter Frosting recipie here.
In a gallon size ziploc bag add two cups coconut and 4 drops green food coloring. Zip the bag shut and shake until the food coloring is even spread on the coconut. Top freshly iced cupcakes with your coconut grass and jelly beans, or chocolate eggs. Enjoy!
