"This is a tradition at Easter in our family! A delicate butter cookie, decorated with colored coconut to look like a little nest and filled with chocolate covered almonds or peanuts. I like to color the coconut by placing it into a jar with the food coloring. Just close the lid and shake until colored. No messy hands!"

These cookies were a hit with my family. They liked my use of mini jelly beans in place of the chocolate nut, too.
So clever! They taste great! I used M&Ms chocolate covered peanuts, and they work marvelously, without falling out of the nests.
