1/4 cup of white chocolate chips
6 large marshmallows
Finely shredded coconut
Chocolate sandwich cookie
Black decorators' gel
Melt 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips (or candy melts) according to the package directions.
For each bird, drop a large marshmallow into the melted chocolate, using a spatula to coat it well.
Remove the marshmallow from the chocolate and roll it in finely shredded coconut, leaving one end uncovered.
Immediately set the marshmallow, coconut free end down, atop a chocolate sandwich cookie.
Let the chocolate set a bit, then use a toothpick to make a hole in the side of the marshmallow and insert a cashew for a beak. (We attached our peanuts with a bit more white chocolate.)
Finally, add black decorators' gel eyes.
