Homemade Organic Easter Candy--YUM!!

Candy Nests (from mother nature network)

1 9-ounce bag of organic chocolate chips (ex. Sunspire Fair Trade organic)
1 cup (or more or less, depending on your love of coconut) organic coconut
Organic jelly beans (I buy at Whole Foods)

1. Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler on the stove (or put them in a heatproof measuring cup, and set that in a saucepan filled with some water). Or you can microwave them for a minute or two.

2. Add the coconut to taste, and stir together with the chocolate.

3. Take a cookie sheet and cover it with parchment paper. Using a spoon, put a dollop of chocolate-coconut mixture on the parchment.

4. Add three jelly beans in the middle and press them down…like eggs in a nest.

Put in the fridge until they are set.
