Spring Coconut Macaroon Nests~





With Easter a few weeks away,
why not try this recipe for:
Coconut Macaroons Nests.

I had to laugh when my grand-son
thought the coconut macaroons looked like eggs and
the spring green sixlets candies looked like peas!

These cute "eggs" and "peas"
would look great on your
Easter Brunch table.
