Coconut Cookie Nests

These cookies are GREAT! My son, who hates coconut, ate most of these cookies! They are simple and the best thing is the toppings can be the chocolate eggs, jelly beans, marshmallows - any kind of treat you like!! This is an easy recipe to keep on making and Easter is just around the corner :)
