Too sweet to hide, these fun Coconut Cookie Nests are the perfect addition to your Easter festivities.

With delicious egg-shaped chocolates nestled atop colorful cookie nests, these easy-to-make treats are sure to create a "hoppy" Easter.

Ingredients

  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 cups shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 colors of food coloring (optional)
  • 12 NESTLÉ CRUNCH or BUTTERFINGER NestEggs, unwrapped

Directions

PREHEAT oven to 325° F. Lightly grease and flour baking sheet.

WHISK egg whites until frothy in medium bowl. Stir in coconut, sugar, flour, vanilla extract and salt until well blended. Divide coconut mixture into 4 bowls. Add 1 to 2 drops different color food coloring to each bowl; mix until colors are dispersed evenly. Drop by tablespoonfuls into 12 mounds 1 1/2 inches apart. Press centers in slightly to form nests.

BAKE for 20 to 22 minutes or until set and lightly golden brown. Remove baking sheet to a wire rack. Cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes; transfer nests to wire rack to cool completely. Place 1 Nestlé NestEgg in each nest before serving.
