Firecracker Cupcakes

Firecracker Cupcakes

1-1/2 cups flake coconut, divided
4 drops each: blue and red food colorings
24 yellow cupcakes
2 cups thawed whipped topping
24 red string licorice pieces (4 inch)

Place 1/2 cup of the coconut in each of two separate resealable plastic bags; set remaining 1/2 cup coconut aside. Add blue food coloring to coconut in one bag and red food coloring to coconut in second bag. Seal bags; shake until coconut is evenly tinted.

Spread tops of cupcakes with whipped topping. Sprinkle with red, white (uncolored) and blue coconut as desired; press coconut gently into whipped topping to secure.
