Ingredients For These Dr Seuss Party Cupcakes

  • 6 Prepared Cupcakes (I used white cake with green liners)
  • 1 Can White Frosting
  • Green Candy Shreds or Green Jimmies
  • 1 ½ Cups Shredded Coconut
  • 10-12 Dum Dum Suckers 
  • Food Coloring (Pink, Blue, Purple, Orange, Yellow, Green)

How To Make Truffula Tree Cupcakes

1. Place about ½ can of frosting in a small bowl and add 2-3 drops of green food coloring, mix well.

2. Frost each cupcake with a knife. Sprinkle on the green candy shreds or jimmies and set aside.

3. Divide the shredded coconut up between six bowls. Add 2-3 drops of different food coloring to each bowl and mix well. 

4. Add a little white frosting to a small bowl. Unwrap a dum dum and twirl it in the frosting so it’s coated nice and even but not to thick. 

5. Place the frosted sucker into one of the coconut bowls and coat it well.

6. Lay on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Repeat steps until you have all the “truffula” trees made.

Ready to serve and enjoy!! Perfect for any Dr. Seuss party!
