    These were FUN to make! I didnt change the recipe at all, but I did spray a muffin pan with baking spray and found it was super easy to shape the nests in there instead of by hand. Also instead of using a mixing bowl, I put the coconut and food coloring in a zip top bag and shook it up! Was super easy to make!
