Chocolate Sunbutter Fudge with Pink Coconut Sprinkles

Cupid Hearts made with Pineapple and Tangerines

First, let me explain how to make the “pink sprinkles.”  I used Rawxy’s idea from her blog to color dried shredded coconut with beet juice to make the coconut turn pink…mine took on a sort of purple color though….it still looked super pretty!!  I just took 1 cup of dried coconut flakes and placed them in my food processor then added in drops of pure beet juice until I reached the desired color.

I placed them into my toaster oven at the lowest setting and left the door open so they didn’t cook…I just wanted them to dry out.  Place in an airtight container and use for any of the following recipes.
