These were fun to make! We baked the cupcakes, and after they were finished cooling we added the Twizzlers. THEN we iced them, added colored coconut, and peanut M&Ms.
To color the coconut, we put a few drops of food coloring + a teaspoon or so of water in a ziploc bag. Then we added the coconut and shook it around. Don't add too much water or the coconut will be soaking wet.
