These thin chocolate cookies with ganache icing dipped into grated coconut make the perfect nests for two or three miniature chocolate eggs.

    Here we go again....preheeat oven and you have almosst an hour of chilling to do before actual baking time. Also I think that there is an error in listing 6 chocolate eggs when you need 2 to 3 chocolate eggs per cookie and you are to get 24 cookies.. Sound delicious and will make. Mykele

    These were SO GOOD. The chocolate cookie part was so chocolaty and very rich. The addition of the coconut was excellent! They looked adorable too. Will def make these again.

    super cute - but I'll toast the coconut instead of coloring it.

    Can anyone recommend a non-perishable substitute for the ganache? I want to send these to relatives with other Spring/Easter cookies, but I fear the frosting won't make it three days outside of the fridge.

    Beautiful cookies, but with the coconut and candy on the top they turned out too sweet for my taste. Anyhow, the idea is lovely, and they were a huge hit on the Easter lunch. The chocolate cookie by itself is excellent, my husband has devoured many undecorated cookies, and have been asking me to bake them again (just the plain cookies, no chocolate ganache or decorations).

    These cookies were a big hit at the baby shower I gave for my nephews wife. They were so cute! I also made the Hummingbird Cake. Everything came out fantastic.
