Coconut Easter Nests

Coconut Easter Nests

These Coconut Easter Nests are so easy to make! All you need are five ingredients, a spatula and one bowl! Start a new spring tradition with the kids this year and have some fun together in the kitchen!

The one thing to know about this recipe is that the dough is very sticky! To make it easier to work with, simply wet your hands with a little water as you scoop out and shape the dough.

To fill the Coconut Easter Nests, you’ll need some egg-shaped candy. We love Mini Cadbury Candy Eggs, M&M Eggs, Mini Robin Eggs, or Jelly Beans. These nests are adorable on an Easter dessert table, or wrapped up individually for classmates, teachers or neighbors. We hope you enjoy them!

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together all ingredients until well-combined. The dough will be very sticky. Wet your hands with a little water and then shape the dough into nest shapes and place them on the parchment-lined baking sheet, about 1 inch apart.
  3. Bake at 325 degrees F for 20-25 minutes, until golden on the bottom. Cool thoroughly and then move to a platter. Place 3-4 candy eggs in the center of each nest and enjoy!
