We’re almost to the end of Bring “4th” the Desserts Week! Just one more day left. I’ve had an awesome time sharing all of my patriotic desserts with you. I hope that you have found a new recipe or two for the 4th of July!
Printable Version: Firecracker Cupcakes
1-1/2 cups Coconut, divided
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.
