Chocolate Coconut Nests Recipe

These nests look and taste fancy but have only three ingredients. They've been very popular with our girls and their friends over the years. You can substitute any flavor ice cream for the mint chocolate chip.—Claire Hudson, South Wales, New York
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (14 ounces each) flaked coconut
  • 1-1/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 3 quarts mint chocolate chip ice cream
