White Chocolate Coconut Easter Nests * Food & Drink

White Chocolate Coconut Easter Birds Nest with jelly bean eggs are a tradition at our house. My mom would make them when I was growing up and I started making them for my kids when their were toddlers. It is a simple recipe. All of the kids will love to help you make them.

White Chocolate Coconut Easter Nests

  • 2 cups of shredded sweetened coconut
  • 2 cups of white chocolate chips
  • 1 bag of your favorite jelly beans
  • Green food coloring

In a large microwave bowl melt the white chocolate chips in microwave checking every 20 seconds. Once melted stir a few drops of green food coloring and shredded coconut into the white chocolate. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick vegetable spray. Press scoops of white chocolate mixture into the muffin tin shaping into nests. Right away before chocolate cools press jelly beans into the white chocolate nest for the birds eggs. To remove nest from the muffin tin place the bottom of the pan in warm water and lift out. Enjoy!
