No bake birds nest

Who doesn't like an easy no bake cookie?  Haystacks, macaroons, or frog cookies (are just a few names for this recipe) are a very quick and easy cookie to put together and I especially love to make them at least one time during the spring season because they make the cutest nest for the delicious mini egg.   Another bonus to this recipe is they are peanut-free so that means you can send them to school in your kids lunch box. 


1 1/4 cup sugar
5 Tbsp coco powder 
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups oats
1 cup flaked sweetened coconut 

1.  In a large pot over low heat combine sugar, coco powder, milk, butter and salt.  Bring to a low boil.  Once boiling allow to low boil for 3 minutes.  Stirring often. 
2. Remove from heat and add vanilla, oats and coconut until incorporated.
3.  Drop by the tablespoon onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.   To make the nest press into the middle of the cookie with a spoon but be careful not to break the shape (you might need to shape with your hand a little).  Place some colourful mini eggs into the centre of each nest and allow to cool and harden. 

These are best consumed the same day but will last stored in an air tight container.
