Easter Nests

Easter Nests

Its just a no-bake cookie with dyed coconut and jelly beans.

To make the No-Bakes...

Mix in a saucepan:

2 cups sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1 stick of margarine

Boil for one minute.

Remove from stove and add in:

3 cups oats (I prefer the regular over the instant.)
1/2 cup peanut butter

Mix well and drop in 1/3 cups onto waxed paper to make circles.
 Let it sit for a few minutes and then use a spoon to make indentations in the center to make nests.

 To dye the coconut put in a plastic bag. Squirt a few drops of green food coloring in as well and shake until dyed. Lay out for 1/2 hour to dry on waxed paper.

 Assemble by putting coconut on the cookie and then jelly beans or chocolate eggs.
