Chocolate Coconut Nests

Chocolate Coconut Nests are fun for the entire family to make and appreciate because they are so mouthwateringly soft and loaded with rich chocolate that is laced with chewy strips of tender sweet coconut. The anticipation will grow as the chocolate begins to melt and the air fills with the sweet aromatic nectar of molten chocolate and stewing coconut flakes. We love making specialty items for the different celebrations and this recipe is a perfectly easy way to have the kids help make something they will enjoy.

Watch the video with your kids and ask them if they would like to try and help makes these. Be sure to let them know that if they help they can clean the bowls and spoons, always fun watching that. The volunteers will be ready to get the aprons on and get to work. Best part is while the nests cool in the refrigerator, clean up is a breeze.
