Dinosaur Eggs Recipe

The mold I'd used to make Jell-O treats at Easter inspired me to include these unusual fun green "dinosaur eggs" on the party lunch menu. Instant pudding and cinnamon give the eggs a creamy look with speckles. —Robin Werner, Brush Prairie, Washington

I made the "nest" out of toasted coconut and green dyed coconut. I was very pleased with how they came out. Not very tasty though, maybe without the cinnamon they'd taste better ..."
