Easy Chocolate Thumbprint Bird's Nest Cookies

March 29, 2012

These chocolate thumbprint bird's nest cookies from The Curvy Carrot are an easy Easter cookie.  Homemade chocolate cookies are rolled in chocolate sprinkles and then baked.  Before sticking these beauties in the oven, make an indent with your thumb (that's where you'll put the Cadbury eggs!).  You can pick up the mini colored chocolate Cadbury eggs at any grocery store.  If you want to get fancy with these cookies, you can take Shannon's lead, the baker, and fill the center with Cadbury cream.  You and your family are going to love these chocolate Easter thumbprint cookies.
