May Day! May Day!

Frantic For a Fun New Treat?
Well, these cuties will take the cake!
Bake a batch of 24 cupcakes...

Frost them...

tint 1 cup of fancy flake coconut (sweetened), with green food coloring and sprinkle it on your frosted cupcakes...

(I like the Ghirardelli Chocolate brand.) I melt it in my microwave, checking and stirring it every 15 seconds. Overheating it will dry it out and it will become too thick. So watch it carefully....

once, twice,maybe three time's the charm. Just so the tootsie pop is well covered with the chocolate coating. I used a piece of oasis to hold my pops while they dried. Just after the last dip, cover with jimmies and sprinkles of your choice.

Now while your coated pops are sitting in your piece of oasis, carefully tie some curling ribbon around the top of your sticks and with scissors, give them a gentle curl. Poke them into your prepared cupcakes and....

you'll feel like celebrating with your

MAYPOLE CUPCAKES!

Happy May Day!
