"These candies are so cute and are also easy enough for small children to help prepare. Use tiny colored jelly beans or Easter colored candy-coated chocolate pieces to decorate nests."

  1. In a small bowl, mix food coloring with milk; add coconut and mix until evenly tinted; set aside.
  2. Melt confectioners' coating over a double boiler or in the microwave, stirring every 15 to 30 seconds until smooth. Mix with coconut mixture and place by spoonfuls on waxed paper. Shape mixture like a bird's nest, making a slight indentation in the center of each one.
  3. Cool completely and decorate by placing candies in the center of each nest.

Easy to make and so cute! I used white chocolate.

Too cute, but the kids didn't like the taste as much as I thought they would. Great for decoration. Might try again next year. Thanks for the post.
