Easter Basket Cookies

This next post is a nice springtime treat to make at Easter.  I always made these when my children were young and they enjoyed helping with the decorating.  I originally made these in the 4th grade for a cookie contest and won a ribbon with a penny on it!  The original recipe is called "Candy Cookies."  They are a cook on the stove no bake cookie.

For the cookies:
     6 T.  cocoa
     1/2 c. butter
     2 c. sugar
    1/2 c. milk
     3 c. oatmeal
    1/2 c. peanut butter
    1/2 c. coconut

Put first 4 ingredients in a saucepan.  Mix well.  Bring to a boil over medium heat.  Boil for 2 minutes.  Mix in remaining ingredients.  Drop large spoonfuls onto a piece of waxed paper.  Press an indention in the middle for the "nest."  Let cool in the refrigerator.

For the nest:  Fill each nest with :  coconut for grass. chocolate eggs/jellybeans/peeps.
