I shared these last year, but a little too late for you to make them. So here they are again, and you have time. They’re fun, and sweet and easy.
1 1/2 cups melted chocolate chips, semi-sweet or milk
2 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
50-60 mini jelly beans
Makes 15 to 18 nests
Mix melted chocolate and coconut. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto wax paper. Make an indentation in center of each nest with a spoon (OK, that’s so not true; you can drop with the spoon, but you really have to shape with your fingers, and make an indentation with your thumb). Press 2 or 3 jelly beans into each. Chill till set. (If you want more than 1 batch, make them separately, because the chocolate can begin to harden while you’re making all those nests.)
Put them in pretty containers and give most of them away.
They are best enjoyed with some Hip Hop music. 🙂
