Easter Nest Cookies

Our family loves making Easter nest cookies. It's one of our traditions. Here's how to make them:

No Bake Cookies

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup butter

Bring all the above ingredients to a boil. Then, pour over the following ingredients which are mixed together in a large bowl: 3 cups oatmeal (quick oats), 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 cup coconut. Mix everything together until well blended. With a cookie dough scoop or just a regular spoon, drop dough by the spoonfuls onto a plate and shape like a bird's nest. BE CAREFUL! The dough will be very hot so please wait a minute or two before touching. Once your nest is complete, place egg shape candies in the nest! Last night we used Cadbury eggs or you can use jelly beans.

It's a great family activity and super yummy!
