Coconut Bird Nests for Easter

For all the coconut lovers out there I found this recipe at Heavenly Savings & Homemaking and I can't resist quick, easy and Coconut recipes.  This one has 3 ingredients.  That's right, no joke!

When you see your nests spread in the pan like mine....don't freak out like I did!  I think my coconut to milk ratio must have not been right or my coconut wasn't dry enough.  But I dealt with it.  When you pull the out of the oven, let then cool just a minute or two. With your fingers press the edges toward the middle and make your egg spot again if necessary. 

After cooling for around 15-20 minutes place your candy eggs in the basket!
