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 coconut grass to make a beautiful grassy bed in a chocolate bowl with our favorite Easter Peeps. 🐥

How to Make Easter Grass with Coconut

How To Make Edible Easter Grass
  1. 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.  
  2. 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)
  3. I would recommend air drying overnight as mine was moister than I wanted for my photographs.

If you are going to let your mixture dry overnight, you can line a tray with waxed paper and allow it 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 it in a very low oven with the door open.  I did not want it to toast and change color so I watched it carefully.

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.
