Coconut Easter Nests

Are you aware that Easter falls in March this year? So that means we are less than 1 month to Easter. Easter is just barely in March, March 31st to be exact. {It is also my birthday, just saying}.  So if you are looking for a fun little treat, look no further.  These little nests can be made so fast.  You don’t even need to break out the mixer.

Coconut Easter Nests


1 (14 oz) bag flake coconut
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg white
egg-shaped candies


Preheat oven to 375.  Mix all ingredients, except candies, together until well blended.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Place about 1/4 cup mounds of coconut dough on prepared pan.  Bake about 15-18 minutes until golden brown.  Cookies may lose shape during baking, simply use a spatula to reshape them.  Make an indentation with thumb to form a nest.  Let cool completely and fill with egg-shaped candies.  {Makes approximately 10 nests, and I could fit them all on one tray.}
