Coconut Macaroon Easter Egg Nests



Happy Easter!

These coconut macaroon Easter egg nests, are very easy to make, and taste incredible!!!

You can't go wrong with coconut, tons of butter, and Nutella! 

Plus, I look forward to the mini Cadbury eggs every year.. So addicting.







Ingredients
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
6 cups shredded coconut
1/4 cup Nutella
45 Cadbury mini eggs

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and salt.
3. Add eggs, one at a time, until mixed thoroughly.
4. Mix in coconut.
5. Use a medium size cookie scooper, and drop batter onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (6 balls to a cookie sheet).
6. Make an indent with fingers, in the middle of the ball, to resemble a bird's nest.
7. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom, and browned in spots on top.
8. Once cooled, spoon Nutella into each nest, and top with 3 eggs.
