DIRECTIONS

Preheat your oven to 350˚ F and line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.

Add the Tropical Sour Punch Bites to a small saucepan along with ¼ cup of water and place over low heat. Stir frequently as the candy melts to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan. When the water cooks off, add another ¼ cup of water and continue to cook and stir until the Sour Punch is mostly melted, about 10 minutes.

Transfer the frosting to a pastry bag and pipe onto cooled cupcakes. Top each with a maraschino cherry, extra Tropical Sour Punch Bites, and shredded coconut, if desired.
