Easter is one of my favorite holidays...filled with pastel colors and hard boiled eggs...and of course the vast amounts of chocolate. I try to always make something sweet and this year I made Peanut Butter and Chocolate Egg Blondies and these adorable egg nests! There are tons of egg shaped hard candies, I used peanut M&M's but you can choose your favorite. They are super easy to make and will definitely get some oohs and ahhs at your Easter table!
- 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk (about half a 14oz can)
- 1 large egg white
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 3 1/2 cups sweetened coconut flakes
- 1 cup Nutella
- M&M's Easter Eggs or other Egg shaped candy
Preheat oven to 325° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, egg white, vanilla and salt. Add the coconut and mix until well combined with the other ingredients.
Scoop 2 tablespoons of dough for each nest. Form the cookies into a shape of a nest and push down the middle with your thumb. Place on prepared cookie sheet and bake for 17-20 minutes until slightly browned. Push down the center of the cookies again with your thumb, careful not to burn yourself. You can also use the back a tablespoon. Cool the cookies completely before filling.
Once cool, fill each nest with about a tablespoon of Nutella then top with the egg candies.
