Hi friends! Now that we’ve made it past St. Patrick’s Day, I think we can focus our full attention on Easter crafts and recipes – and we have a great one for you today – Easter Basket Cupcakes! These are again straight from Grandma’s Kitchen. My mother is probably the best baker that I know, and I love that she loves to make fun treats for our family.

Aren’t they just the cutest? They look great and they’re tasty too! If you’ve never colored coconut before and need more detail on that step, check out this how-to by Nest of Posies! I think this would be a fun activity with the kids as well. Let each one decorate their own basket! I hope you enjoyed another installment of From Grandma’s Kitchen. Do you think we should make this a regular segment. I sure do!

    Awesome! I love to see chocolate twizzlers used in a recipe–I love them but no one seems to know they exist!

    Wow this looks great. I definitely want to try it. In February my husband gave me a perfect gift for St. Valentine’s Day – a cooking class for couples organized here in Vancouver so I’m now collecting interesting recipes to come up with during that course and this is a great source of inspiration for both of us. :)
