Easter Basket Cupcakes

Easter is almost upon us. In my house that means that it's time to make a batch of these cute cupcakes. My mother used to make them every year, when I was little, and we all looked forward to helping her. Now my kids are the ones begging for them.

Easter Basket Cupcakes

24 cupcakes, baked and cooled
1 batch of vanilla frosting (or 1 can)
1 or 2 cups of coconut
green food coloring
chocolate eggs or jelly beans
colored pipe cleaners, cut in half

Tint the frosting green with a few drops of food coloring. Place the coconut in a plastic sandwich bag, add a few drops of green food coloring, and seal shut. Shake until the coconut turns green.

Frost the cupcakes generously. Sprinkle on a layer of coconut.

Place several chocolate eggs or jelly beans in the center of each cupcake.

Bend the pipe cleaners into curved handles. Gently slide into cupcakes.

Serve and enjoy.
