Fun for the Kids!

Ingredients:

  • 1 dozen cupcakes
  • 1 can prepared vanilla frosting or homemade buttercream frosting
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon green food colouring
  • 1 1/2 tsp. water
  • 12 - 81/2-inch long orange or red licorice twists
  • 8 ounces Jelly Belly jelly beans in pastel colours.

Directions:

Frost cupcakes generously with white icing, being careful to spread out to the edge of each cupcake. Bend one twist and insert ends into cupcakes making a basket handle.

Combine water and green food colouring. Combine coconut and toss until the coconut is bright green. Add more of the water/food colouring mixture to achieve desired colour.

To decorate cupcakes, place about 10 beans all of the same flavour standing up as a border. Sprinkle green coconut on top of cupcakes. Place in the centre, five Jelly Belly beans in colours different than the border colour.

Serving Size: Makes one dozen Spring Baskets.
