Peeps + Mini Eggs + Chocolate = Easter

D refers to these as sugar bombs and his niece and nephew literally jumped up and down when I made them last year. This year the chocolatley sugar eggs come with a marshmallow chicken.... Hoppy Easter!

This is my grandmother's recipe for "unbaked cookies". Some people call them haystacks or drop cookies. Whatever they are called, they are dead easy to make and make great nests for your peep and her eggs.  Don't question the amount of sugar. Just close your eyes and enjoy!

Unbaked Cookies (Uncle Donald's Favorite)

1/2 cup margarine
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup milk

-boil all for 5 minutes, no longer
-remove form heat and add dry ingredients:

3 cups oats
1/2 cup coconut
4 Tablespoons cocoa

-mix well
-drop by the 1/4 cup onto waxed paper/cookie sheets
- using the back of a spoon sprayed with Pam, create a hollow in each haystack for your nest.
-before it cools completely add a "peep" and a few Cadbury mini eggs
-brush teeth well before bed ;)
