Ingredients

14 oz
sweetened coconut, shredded
1 1/2 Tbsp
flour
2
eggs
1/4 stick
butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix coconut, flour and eggs in a bowl. Butter a baking pan and shape nests to the desired width.
2
Bake in oven for 15 minutes. Check occasionally to make sure that nests do not burn. It may take a bit longer, but they can burn fast, so start with 15 minutes and go from there.
3
When done, cool nests and fill with your favorite candy and treats. I put a bit of frosting in the bottom of the nests to secure the 'eggs'.
