Firecracker Cupcakes~Tasty Tuesday

With 4th of July just around the corner there are all kinds of great recipes to make for a fun family & friends celebration, but this is one my daughter loves helping with!



Firecracker Cupcakes

What You Need:
1-1/2 cups BAKER'S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut, divided
4 drops each: blue and red food colorings
24 yellow cupcakes
2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
24 red string licorice pieces (4 inch)

Make It:


PLACE 1/2 cup of the coconut in each of two separate resealable plastic bags; set remaining 1/2 cup coconut aside. Add blue food coloring to coconut in one bag and red food coloring to coconut in second bag. Seal bags; shake until coconut is evenly tinted.

SPREAD tops of cupcakes with whipped topping. Sprinkle with red, white (uncolored) and blue coconut as desired; press coconut gently into whipped topping to secure.

INSERT licorice piece into top of each cupcake for the firecracker's fuse. Store in refrigerator.


Well there you have it a fun and yummy treat that the kids can help with! Hope you are having a great Tuesday!
