Additions and Substitutions

No green Easter grass for the serving tray? You can tint coconut green with a few drops of green food coloring. Measure out a cup of shredded coconut, dump it in a bowl, add 2 drops to start with and mix well. Add one drop more at a time until you like the shade of green. Repeat with another cup of coconut until there is enough “grass” to cover your serving tray.

Want to add whiskers, eyes, and nose to your bunnies? Black licorice strings can be cut and inserted for whiskers. Pink jelly beans can be added for eyes and black jelly beans can be added for a nose.

Instead of real eggs on the serving platter, you can sprinkle Easter candy on the platter.
