MINI EASTER EGG CANDY NESTS
Easter’s right around the corner and these fun candies rival the store-bought boxed kind.
I love these nests since they can be made with different kinds of high-quality chocolate.
Desiccated coconut is quite dry and fine, with lots less moisture than regular.
I suppose you could use regular unsweetened flaked coconut, but I would chop it up a bit.
8 ounces finely chopped chocolate - your choice of milk, semisweet or white
1-1/3 cups unsweetened desiccated coconut
Dash green food coloring if you like for the white chocolate
Tiny jellybeans or tiny pastel chocolate eggs
Melt half of the chocolate very slowly. Stir in rest of chocolate until smooth. Stir in food coloring if using. Stir in coconut and drop tablespoons of mixture onto sprayed cookie sheet keeping shape as rounded as you can. Make small indentation in center and put in 3 candies. Chill until set.
