  • 1 recipe for cupcakes of your choice see notes below
  • 1 recipe for frosting of your choice see notes below
  • 12 chocolate bunny candies I used Lindt but Ghirardelli makes cute ones too
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 drops green food coloring


Make cupcakes and frost them.

  • Make the cupcakes. Once they are cool, frost each cupcake. See notes below for links to the recipes I used. 

Make the Coconut Grass

  • Place shredded coconut in ziplock bag. 
  • Place 1-2 drops of green food coloring in the bag. Shake well until the color is dispersed. Use more of less food coloring based on the shade of green you want to achieve. A little goes a long way!

Decorate the cupcakes

  • Sprinkle the shredded coconut grass onto each cupcake sparingly. 
  • Top each cupcake with a chocolate bunny candy.


For the cupcakes, I used this recipe for Basic Vanilla Cupcakes from Key Ingredient.
For the frosting, I used this recipe for Homemade Buttercream Frosting from Nums the Word.
