INGREDIENTS

Easter Basket Cupcakes:

Funfetti Cupcakes (use your favorite recipe or a simple box mix)

Frosting (use premade frosting or the recipe included here)

Shredded coconut

RED VINES Raspberry Twists

RED VINES Lemon Blueberry Candy Straws

Egg-shaped candy

Coconut Grass:

1 cup Shredded Coconut

Green food coloring

Frosting:

*Optional! Feel free to use a premade frosting

¾ cup Powdered Sugar, plus 1 tbsp

8 tbsp Butter

tsp Table Salt


DIRECTIONS

  1. For the coconut grass:
  2. Place the shredded coconut in a zip-top plastic bag. Add a very small drop of green food coloring to the bag.
  1. 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.
  1. For the frosting:
  2. *Optional! Free free to use a premade frosting instead.
  3.  
  4. 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.
  5.  
  6. 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.
  7.  
    1. Cupcake Assembly:
    2.  

    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.

  1.  
  1. Cut RED VINES Twists and Candy Straws in half. Using the halves, bend into arc shapes.

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

    Enjoy!
