Perfect for Easter! Trix Coconut Nests

Trix Coconut Nests
by Tamela K.

1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
2 Tablespoons water
4 to 5 drops of green food coloring
1/2 cup white melting chocolate wafers
3/4 cup Trix cereal

Place paper liners in mini muffin pans. In a plastic sack, shake together sweetened shredded coconut, 2 Tablespoons water and 4 to 5 drops of green food coloring. Add more food coloring if you prefer a darker green. Shake the sack until the shredded coconut has an even green color. Place the white chocolate wafers in a medium-sized glass bowl and melt at 15 second increments, stirring in between. When the chocolate has melted to a smooth texture, add the green shredded coconut and stir until fully coated. Spoon a heaping Tablespoon of the chocolate coated coconut mixture into each of the mini muffin pans. Press the center down, so it forms a nest. Place Trix cereal in the coconut nests and refrigerate approximately an hour for the chocolate to firm. Remove the paper liners to serve.
