This is a tradition at Easter in our family! Delicate butter cookies, coated with colored coconut to look like little nests. Nests are 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. - 02 Apr 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
So clever! They taste great! I used M&Ms chocolate covered peanuts, and they work marvelously, without falling out of the nests. - 14 Apr 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
There isn't any Almonds in the recipe!!! - 11 Apr 2017 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
