What You Need

pkg.  (2-layer size) yellow cake mix
cups  thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
drops  green food coloring
piece  black string licorice (4 feet)
 jelly beans

Make It

PREPARE cake mix as directed on package for cupcakes; cool completely.

STIR green food coloring into whipped topping. Spoon into large resealable plastic bag. Cut a small zigzag hole in one bottom corner of the bag.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Make it Easy
Prepare cake batter as directed; pour into large resealable plastic bag. Snip off one of the bottom corners of bag; squeeze batter into prepared baking cups. It’s much quicker and less messy than spooning the batter into cups.
