White Choc birds nests
These are super easy to make and are a great easter treat.I will be making these year after year for easter.
1 pkg vanilla almond bark - divided in half
green food coloring
1 pkg sweetened flaked coconut- divided in half
1 bag chocolate speckled eggs or jelly beans
In a glass microwavable bowl melt the bark half a block at a time. (its way easier to melt doing it this way)Microwave it 2 mins at a time stirring each time. Do not over melt or else it will burn.Add the food coloring until desired shade of green. Mix well and add half the bag of coconut. Stir until coconut is mixed in and place by spoonfuls on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Shape them into little nests and place the chocolate candies in the center ( I used big speckled m&m') Place cookie sheet in fridge and let chill for about 20 mins. repeat the process again for the other half of the bark
