How to Make Coconut Nests

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix coconut, flour and eggs in a bowl. Butter a baking pan and shape nests to the desired width.
  • 2Bake in oven for 15 minutes. Check occasionally to make sure that nests do not burn. It may take a bit longer, but they can burn fast, so start with 15 minutes and go from there.
  • 3When done, cool nests and fill with your favorite candy and treats. I put a bit of frosting in the bottom of the nests to secure the 'eggs'.
  • 4I use these to decorate my Easter cakeEaster Cake
