How to Make Coconut Macaroon Nutella Nests

  • We used our favorite coconut macaroon recipe to make the cookies.
  • Shape the macaroons into little bird nests and bake them until they are slightly golden brown.
  • Let the macaroons cool and decorate them! If you have children, get them to help you decorate the nests. It is a ton of fun.
  • Spoon a big blob of Nutella into the centers of the nests and top with candy eggs. I used M&M’s Speck-tacular Eggs, but feel free to use your favorite Easter candy. Cadbury Mini Eggs or Robin Eggs would also be good. Oh, how I love Easter candy!

How to Store

Store the nests in an airtight container on the counter for up to 3 days. You can store them with or without the candy eggs.

    These look so adorable. I cannot wait to try them for my easter party this weekend!

    Thank you for sharing the great recipe.

    These looks so cute but they are overly sweet, bordering on inedible. Between the sweetened condensed milk, sweetened coconut, Nutella, and chocolate eggs… it’s sugar, on sugar, on sugar, on sugar. Not a fave!

    Perfect for Easter. Highly recommend using Vanilla Extract from OliveNation. Their extract and paste has a much more vanilla and less alcoholic taste and really adds the vanilla flavor to recipes.
