Instructions
  1. Bake the cupcakes according to the package directions. Or of course, you can whip them up from scratch if you have enough time.
  2. Using a knife, cover the top of the cupcake with a generous amount of frosting. It needs to be thick enough to hold the chocolate and coconut in place, so make sure the entire top is evenly covered and don’t be stingy.
  3. Press the York Peppermint Patty into the icing towards the edge, like in the photo below. Press it so it goes all the way through the icing until it hits the cupcake. The icing will hold it in place.
  4. Find three similarly sized dark chocolate covered raisins and press them into the icing above the peppermint patty.
  5. Fill a small bowl with coconut flakes and make a well in the center. Then holding the cupcake by the bottom, gently press the frosted part of the cupcake into the coconut, rolling it around to cover all the edges. As long as you used enough frosting, the chocolate pieces should stay in place.
  6. If you miss any spots, use a spoon to press some coconut flakes into the frosting. Some of the spots between the toes didn’t quite make it into the coconut, but other than that, it was pretty well covered.
Recipe Notes

I used heavier silver cupcake liners, but I’m not sure I’d really recommend them for this? They are definitely pretty, but they come off the cupcakes really easily, so it made it really difficult to grip the cupcakes from the bottom to get them dipped in the coconut.

Just use regular paper cupcake liners, and then if you want a pretty patterned liner, just put the cupcakes into another liner after they’re baked. (Don’t remove the first liner, or you’ll end up with a mess!) They’ll be double lined in the end, but it will give them a nice clean look.
