White Chocolate Coconut Birds nests with Jelly Beans

One of our family traditions is to make white chocolate coconut birds nests. They are one of my favorite holiday treats. Our birds nests are so easy to make even your youngest children can help out with the mixing and adding the birds egg jelly beans on the top.

- 1 12oz bag of white chocolate chips (we use Nestles because it melts better)
- 1 pound bag of sweetened shredded coconut
- green food coloring
- bag of your favorite jelly beans

In a glass bowl melt white chocolate chips in microwave checking every 20 seconds. Do not over heat or the white chocolate will harden. Mix in green food coloring to desired color. Mix in coconut. Spray muffin tins with vegetable spray. Press white chocolate and coconut mixture into muffin tins shaping like nests. Press jelly beans into the soft white chocolate and coconut nest before they set. Allow to harden. Remove from muffin tins and wrap in pretty plastic bags tied with an Eastery ribbon to give or enjoy!
