This is a recipe from my mom from many years ago and I used to make for my kids at Easter.

These are even a nice treat for a kids Sunday school class party.

Have fun making these and have the kids help!

I wish you all a very Blessed Happy Easter!!!

Always, Lita :)

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These little nests taste like crunchy no-bake cookies - they're delicious. Both kids and adults will enjoy making these. What a fun and yummy addition to your Easter dessert table!

If you're in a pinch and don't have time to tint the coconut, try edible grass they sell in the stores at Eater. It'll work like a charm.
