Coconut Macaroon Nutella Nests are a fun and easy treat for Easter and spring! You will love the Nutella filling!?
Spring has sprung and Easter is right around the corner, so today I am sharing a cookie recipe for, Coconut Macaroon Nutella Nests. The cookies are easy and fun to make, Josh actually made the cookies and I decorated them. We make a great team:) The coconut nests are super cute and the Nutella center is divine!
We used our favorite coconut macaroon recipe to make the cookies. Josh shaped the macaroons into little bird nests and baked them until they were slightly golden brown. After the macaroons cooled, I got to decorate them! If you have children, get them to help you decorate the nests. It is a ton of fun. I know I had a good time playing with Nutella and candy:)
I spooned a big blob of Nutella into the centers of the nests and topped the Nutella 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!
Make these Coconut Macaroon Nutella Nests for Easter this year. They would be a great addition to any Easter basket or a great treat to place at each place setting for Easter brunch of dinner. They are almost too pretty and cute to eat-almost:)
