3 Ingredient Edible Easter Grass
Quick & Easy edible Easter grass is the perfect accent for your Easter table. Just water, food coloring, and sweetened coconut. Using this edible grass you can have any dessert nestled in an edible easter basket theme.
I have used this coconut grass to serve my Jell-O Easter eggs. (CLICK HERE: for Post on Jell-O Easter Eggs) I also have used the coconut grass to make a beautiful grassy bed in a chocolate bowl with our favorite easter Peeps. 🐥
These dessert decorations make an elegant background for you Sunday Easter Dinner tablescape. (Just be careful that your family or guest do not take a bit out of your decorations before dinner is served)

Supplies You Will Need:
In a medium mixing bowl start by adding 6 to 8 drops of green food coloring. Add to the food coloring, 1 tsp of water. Now add your coconut (I started with 1/2 a bag) and mix well and lightly with a fork. 🌪 Add more water and food coloring to get the color you desire. (be careful with the water as you will want the coconut to dry before you use it)
If you are going to let your mixture dry overnight, you can line a tray with waxed paper and allow to air dry. I wanted mine to dry a little faster so I make a tray of aluminum foil. I spread my colored coconut in a thin layer and put in a very low oven with the door open. I did not want it to toast and change color so I watched it carefully.
I would recommend air drying overnight as mine was moister than I wanted for my photographs.
For the little chocolate cups to set the grass and bunny in I used a foil cupcake liner. I melted dark chocolate melting discs, lined the holder with chocolate and put in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes. Carefully tear off the liner and you have a beautiful bed for your decorations.
This is a great decorating project to get your little ones involved. Cooking and crafting are perfect for teaching littles the skills of life and the fun of working together. 👼🏻
Happy Easter 🐰
