These cupcakes are perfect for any kids Easter party. I used to send these to school with my kids to share with class for Easter parties--the kids went nuts over them. Sure to be a hit with the under 7 crowd. They look like mini easter baskets--so cute!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cupcakes, baked and lightly frosted (any flavor)
  • 1 (14 ounce) package flaked coconut
  • 3 -6 drops green food coloring
  • 48 jelly beans

Directions

  1. In a large ziplock bag, place coconut with a few drops of green food coloring.
  2. Shake until coconut is light green.
  3. Place some green coconut on each cupcake, pressing firmly so it adheres to the frosting.
  4. Place a few jellybeans on each cupcake.
  5. Bend pipe cleaners in a arch.
  6. Place into cupcake to resemble a basket handle (you may have to cut pipe cleaners in half if they are long).
  7. The final cupcake should resemble an easter basket.
  8. Hint: I use 2 cupcake papers for each cupcake so the "basket" is a pretty color.
