Crispy Easter Nests

First of all: Forgive my absence... I am in the middle of moving and things have been pretty crazy around here!
Second of all...
Aren't these fun!  We had such an awesome Easter Egg Hunt yesterday and my friend brought these cute treats.  They were a big hit with kids and grown-ups. :)

Crispy Easter Nests
1 (14 oz.) bag sweetened flake coconut
Green food dye
1 (7.5 oz.) jar Marshmallow Fluff
3 cups Rice Krispies
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Cooking spray
24 Jordan almonds (She used jelly beans)

Place 1 (14 oz.) bag sweetened flake coconut in a bowl. Use a toothpick to apply and stir in a few drops of green food dye. Let dry. Melt 1 (7.5 oz.) jar Marshmallow Fluff in a pan over medium-low heat, stirring, until soft and pliable. Stir in 3 cups Rice Krispies. Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips; remove from heat. Arrange 8 paper cupcake liners on a work surface. Mist hands with cooking spray. Gather a small amount of cereal mixture and shape to fit into a cupcake liner. Add more cereal to make a rim around top. Let cool. Make 7 more. Fill each nest with a bit of coconut and 3 Jordan almonds.
