NEST COOKIES



I better post this before spring is actually over!! Hehe!
I made these cookies for the preschool minis' Easter party. I think you could use this idea for any Spring themed party as well.



First, make or buy some sugar cookies. I think any size would do depending on the size eggs you find.


I laid them out on my trays.
Then in a large freezer size plastic bag empty a bag of shredded coconut. I used the unsweetened kind because you will add hot cocoa (like the SwissMiss kind) to the bag until the mixture looks like this:


You can start off with a small amount of cocoa and gradually add more as you see fit. I placed some of the cocoa mixture in a bowl as well as my chocolate eggs. (I used Cadbury for this).

Next, I frosted each sugar cookie with chocolate frosting:

And took a large pinch of the coconut mix and placed it on the cookie. I took the eggs and nestled them right in the middle.


I did have to add a tiny bit of frosting to some of the eggs to help make them stick.


Now, I left them on their trays so I could transport them to school. But I think one could easily set up a nice display with some cake plates or colored "Easter" grass.


They were delicious.
