Hummingbird Nests

Recipe and photo credit

Here is a fun and easy spring treat, my kids love making these!


1 cup milk chocolate chips

1 cup shredded coconut

Jelly bean eggs


  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    Fun and Easy! Score! Just what I needed for my Daughters Bday at school! Thanks!

    I made these one year, but used white chocolate dyed green and instead of coconut (I’m not a huge fan) I used chow mein. You can get it in WinCo’s bulk food section.
