Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 2 cups of shredded sweetened coconut flakes
  • 2/3 cup of sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • Easter egg-shaped candies
  • Chocolate candy coating (I used 4 blocks of almond bark)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Stir the flour, coconut, and cocoa together in a large mixing bowl until the coconut is thoroughly coated with flour and chocolate.
  3. Add the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Using a 2 tablespoon scoop, drop coconut mixture by the spoonful onto the cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. To make the basket shape, dampen fingers with water and gently tap the middle to make a depression to hold your candies.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the cookies are set
  6. Place cookies on a cooling rack to cool.
  7. Meanwhile, follow the instructions on the chocolate candy coating package and melt the chocolate.

  9. Add a bit of the melted chocolate to the center of the cookies and add your candies.
