Chocolate Coconut Nests

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. + chilling


24 servings

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

  1. In a bowl, toss coconut and chocolate until well blended. On baking sheets covered with waxed paper, shape about 1/3 cupfuls into 2-1/2-in. nests. Chill until firm. Just before serving, top each nest with 1/2 cup of ice cream.
