Today’s post is sponsored by Nestle Toll House, but my love for their Rolled & Ready Cookie Dough Sheets is all my own!
These Bird Nest Easter Cookies just make me happy every time I look at them. I love the bright colors, and I love how EASY they were to make. All you need is some yummy Nestlé Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and pre-made icing to make these adorable little treats.
When I was growing up my Mom would make Nestlé Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies for me regularly after school. Looking back, she was probably bribing me with hot cookies so I would sit and tell her about my day. Well played, Mom. Needless to say, now that I am a Mom, Nestlé Toll House Refrigerated Cookie Dough has become a staple in my refrigerator. The refrigerated dough makes it so convenient to just pop them into the oven a few at a time.
I thought it would be fun to dress up some cookies with a little Easter spirit for my girls. I used pre-made icing and coconut tinted with green food coloring to create little bird nests for little marshmallow birds. Just open the package of icing and mix in 2-3 drops of green food coloring with a knife. Place 4-6oz of shredded coconut in a bowl with 3-4 drops of green food coloring and mix well with a fork. Top each Nestlé Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie (baked as directed on the package) with icing and coconut. Set a cute little sugary marshmallow bird on top and voila! These would be so cute for an Easter brunch or get together.
My kiddos loved helping me make these easy Bird Nest Easter Cookies. I love keeping products like this on hand that help me get creative in the kitchen, and make it easier to include little helpers. Sophia loved breaking apart the cookies to bake them and topping each little nest with a bird.
