In a small bowl, mix food colouring with milk; add coconut and mix until evenly tinted; set aside.
Melt the chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave, stirring every 15 to 30 seconds until smooth. Mix with coconut mixture and place by spoonfuls on waxed paper. Shape mixture like a bird's nest, making a slight indentation in the centre of each one – but don’t press too hard.
Cool completely and place 2 or 3 little Easter eggs in the centre of each nest.
