1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup shredded coconut
Jelly bean eggs

Melt the chocolate chips, following the directions on the bag. When the chocolate is smooth, stir in the coconut, then drop the mixture by the heaping tablespoon onto waxed-paper-lined cookie sheets.

While the nests are still warm, use your thumbs to poke an impression into the middle of each. Cool them, then fill with jelly bean eggs. Makes about 1 dozen.

I've seen these made so many different ways. If you aren't a big fan of coconut you could always use pretzel sticks or any number of other ingredients.
