Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously spray a 12-cup muffin tin. Whisk together egg, honey, extract and salt until well combined. Add to coconut and flour. (Kids can do this with clean hands. It’s a bit messy, so you know they’ll want to get into the fun.) Divide into muffin tins. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool slightly. Press centers of “nests” while still warm to form an indentation in each.

When cool, add candy to center.
