Chocolate Coconut Nests with Jelly Bean EggsNotes:
These nests are a homemade version of the Russell Stover candy, and a fun Easter treat.
- If making white chocolate version: before adding coconut add a dash of green food coloring until desired shade of green is achieved.
- Tip: if making all three versions, start with white chocolate first, then move on to milk chocolate, then move on to dark chocolate. This will allow you to use the same bowl for all three flavors.
