  • 1/2 C butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 C creamy peanut butter
  • 1 C all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 C cocoa baking powder
  • 1/2 C raw sugar
  • 1/2 C packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • shredded coconut
  • mini egg shaped candies (spring time colored peanut M&M’s or Cadbury candy coated chocolate mini eggs work best)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl beat butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until creamy and well blended.  Add 1/2 C of the flour, the cocoa baking powder, sugars, egg, baking powder, baking soda, and vanilla.  Beat until thoroughly combined.  Beat in remaining flour.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls, roll into coconut to coat, place on an un-greased cookie sheet. Press middle with thumb to make a nest shape.  Place about 2 inches apart.

Bake for 7-10 minutes until coconut is lightly browned.  Do not over-bake.  Remove from oven and press candy eggs into the nests.  If indentation disappears during baking, press middle down gently with the edge of a large spoon before placing eggs.  Allow to sit on cookie sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.  Makes about 16 – 24 cookies.
