Fun & Easy to Decorate Easter Basket Cupcakes

Sharing is caring!

I remember my Grandma making this special cupcakes for us when I  was a kid and I think it is about time that I make some.  If you check out the Celebrate with Hershey’s web site, you can grab a recipe to make the cupcakes from scratch, but feel free to use a mix. 

To decorate the cupcakes, use tinted coconut to make “Easter basket grass”.  To tint it coconut, just mix a few drops of green food color with 3/4 teaspoon water and mix into 1-1/2 cups coconut until evenly tinted.  Use Twizzlers to make basket handles and then decorate using mini jellybeans and Mini Robin Eggs.
