How to Color Coconut | Add this easy step and take a regular dessert up a notch! Decorate a cake or cupcakes. Transform the top of your cake or cupcakes into works of art! Make a peeps nest or even the face of a chick! For an added bonus stuff your cupcakes with a combination of colored coconut and colored chocolate candy. At the last minute add colored coconut to your homemade coconut ice cream. It will create swirls of colors.
Spoon coconut into a zip top bag; add a few drops of food coloring, and rub together until the color has been transferred to the coconut.
Pour out onto a cookie sheet lined with wax or parchment paper to let the food coloring dry.
