Easy Bird Nest Easter Cookies
- 1 tube sugar cookies
- 1 tub of whipped white frosting
- Green food coloring
- 1 bag shredded coconut
- 1 bag robin egg candy
Cook sugar cookies as directed on package.
Cool cookies on wired rack until they are cool enough that the frosting won’t melt once on the cookie.
Color the frosting and the coconut with a few drops of food coloring. Most of you already know how to color frosting but if you don’t just keep adding yellow and green and stir until you get the desired color. For the coconut dissolve a few drips of coloring into a teaspoon of water and seal with the coconut into a ziplock bag. Shake until colored.
Frost each of the sugar cookies.
Once frosted add the green shredded coconut on top of the frosting.
Now place 3 of the candy robin eggs in the middle of the cookie.
There are many ways your children can help make these Easy Bird Nest Easter Cookies even if they are Pre-School age. Just adjust how to do it for there age. For instance a Pre-K child can cut using a butter knife (assisted), they can shake the bag real good for the coconut and they will have a blast making the green colored icing and may even learn that yellow and blue make green! Have fun!
