Nestle sent us some of their seasonal Easter candies and asked us to share a favorite recipe wtih you.  We’d been looking  for a cute and unique Easter treat- and found the most adorable/easy recipe on the Nestle site for Chocolate Chip Easter Baskets.  I guarantee that you will have fun making these with your little ones.  These would make great classroom treats as well!  With just 5 ingredients, these bite sized treats can be assembled in just minutes.

Chocolate Chip Easter Baskets

Ingredients:

1 Package Nestle Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Dough

1/2 Cup Flake Coconut

4 drops of green food coloring

Jelly Beans (the WONKA® SweeTARTS® or SPREE® Jelly Beans work well)

Thin String Licorice

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Using a mini muffin pan, press one square of cookie dough into each well (pressing against the edges to form a basket shape).  Bake 8-10 minutes.  While cookies are still warm, use a toothpick to poke holes onto each side of the cookie, where the licorice “handles” can be inserted.  Make sure that the holes are the same size as the licorice.

While cookies are cooling, add 4 drops of green food coloring to the coconut.  Use a fork to mix the food coloring to make “easter grass”.

Allow cookies to cool in pan for 10 minutes.  Remove, and allow to cool to room temperature.  Insert licorice handles into cookie.  Add green coconut grass to the center of the basket and top with Jelly Beans.

 

You can also do these and put some of the Nestle Crunch or Butterfinger foil-wrapped eggs into the baskets- there are many, many options – have some fun with these!

 

Thanks to Nestle for sending some product samples.  Opinions are, as always, our own.
