8 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
3 cups canned potato sticks
1/2 cup coconut flakes
1 can cooking spray
36 each Cadbury Mini Eggs, Jelly Beans, or egg shaped candy of choice
12 Peep Marshmallow Chicks

Coconut Grass
1/2 cup coconut flakes
3 drops green food coloring

(mix together until flakes become a light green tint)

Line a cupcake pan with liners and spray with cooking spray. In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate in 30 second intervals until smooth. Add melted chocolate to potato sticks and coconut flakes until evenly coated. Spoon 1-2 tablespoons of chocolate mixture to each cupcake liner and shape into a bird's nest. Allow to cool for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator. Once cooled, add a teaspoon of coconut grass, 3 mini eggs, and top with marshmallow chick.

Happy Easter.
