Preheat the oven to 190°C (170°C for fan assisted ovens)/Gas Mark 5.

In a mixing bowl, stir the cookie mix together with the water until you have a stiff dough. Spoon 8 equal size amounts of dough onto a non-stick baking tray (see tip), leaving generous gaps between them. Bake in the centre of the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden (or leave in a little longer for extra crunch). Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely.

Place half the desiccated coconut in a small sealable freezer bag with a little pink food colouring paste or gel and rub with your fingers until the coconut is coloured pink. Repeat in a second bag with the remaining desiccated coconut and the green food colouring paste or gel.

Top each cookie with a swirl of the icing. Pile pink coconut onto half the cookies and green coconut onto the remaining cookies. Sit 3 mini chocolate eggs in the centre of each ‘nest’. Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.
