How to Make It

Step 1

Place oven rack in middle of oven and preheat to 375ºF. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment.

Step 2

Combine confectioners' sugar, coconut, egg whites, vanilla and salt in a medium bowl and mix with a rubber spatula. Add green food coloring and stir in completely until the dough is desired color. Dough will be sticky.

Step 3

Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of dough onto baking sheets. Moisten your fingers with water. Using your index finger, make a 1/2-inch hole in center of each cookie. Carefully flatten dough with your fingers into a 3-inch wreath shape. Remoisten fingertips with water as needed. (Cookies don't spread as they cook, so leave about 1 inch between them on the baking sheet.) Repeat with remaining dough. Press a few M&M's Minis or other decorations into each cookie.

Step 4

Bake cookies until firm and light brown around edges, 8 to 10 minutes. (Cookies will firm as they cool; they are very soft coming out of oven.) Let cool on baking sheets on wire racks. Repeat with remaining dough and candies.
