How to Make

  • Remove the outer foil wrapper from 24 REESE’S Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures.

  • To make the basket grass, place one cup of MOUNDS Coconut Flakes in a plastic bag. In a small bowl, mix several drops of green food coloring with a teaspoon of water. Pour this solution over the coconut, then seal the bag and shake until the color is evenly distributed.

  • Put a dab of royal icing on the top of a REESE’S Peanut Butter Cups Miniature, then press a small amount of green coconut flakes into the icing.

  • Top the coconut flakes with JOLLY RANCHER Jelly Beans. Add additional royal icing to the bottom of the candies as needed.

  • To create the basket handle, cut a single strand of TWIZZLERS PULL ‘N’ PEEL Candy into 2” pieces. Use royal icing to attach the TWIZZLERS PULL ‘N’ PEEL Candy to the sides of the REESE’S Peanut Butter Cup Miniature.

  • Repeat steps three through five to create 24 REESE’S Miniatures Easter Baskets.
