  • Amy Green

    This is an amazingly cool recipe! The best part is that the melted lime green candy pieces really do look like grass. I might even vary that part of the recipe by using dyed green coconut flakes. You can also change the hue of the skeleton to another color, like maybe red, green or gray depending on how scary you want your dessert to be!
