Colored Coconut to make Pretty Spring Treats

It has officially been spring for a while now, but apparently mother nature is not feeling it.

I don’t know about you but I need some color in my life. Something bright and cheery, something a little  a lot springy.

Colored coconut is pretty and cheery, and very easy to do. It is perfect for spring time bird’s nest themed treats, and a pretty garnish on cakes and cupcakes. And yes colored coconut, is very springy!

  • Author: Jennifer @ Home in the Finger Lakes

  • 1 pint size mason jar or Ziploc bag for each color

  2. Shake jar or bag to mix the coloring into the water. Add coconut. Shake jar again, until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Lay colored coconut out on paper towel and allow to dry a little bit to make sure any extra moisture is gone.
  4. Store in mason jars or plastic bags in refrigerator if not using right away.
