Easter Egg Nests | Eggless Baking

7:05:00 PM


Easter is around the corner and I want Kiara to get familiar with the easter egg hunt (She is just 17 Months Old and doesn't understand things much). So I am trying to get her involved into some Easter crafts and treats. She loves helping me with chores, so I thought it would be a great idea to get her to help me with decorating these Easter Cookie Nests. 

Coconut Caramel Easter Egg Nests are made with coconut cookies, salted caramel sauce and chocolate candy eggs. This is a cutest little Easter dessert ever.

Ingredients:

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 20 minutes | Yields: 14-16 cookies

1-1/2 cups Flaked Coconut
1/3 cup White Sugar
6 tblsp All Purpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Almond Extract
1 pinch Salt
1/2 cup Condensed Milk
Salted Caramel Sauce
Chocolate Candy Eggs



Method:


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large bowl, combine blend coconut, sugar, flour, baking powder, almond extract andsalt.
  • Combine all the ingredients well.
  • Add the condensed milk and fold it until just combined.
  • Roll spoonfulls of coconut mixture between palms to golf size balls cookies and then flatten into a disk.
  • Arrange them on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper.


  • Bake cookies in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, and then open the oven and take the cookies out.
  • Use the back of a spoon to create a well in the cookie and reshape it into a nest.
  • Continue cooking in the oven  until the cookies is slightly golden and toasted, about 5-10 more minutes.
  • Transfer to the wire rack to cool, about 30 minutes.
  • Make some delicious salted caramel sauce.
  • Fill each well with caramel sauce and fill with 3-4 candy coated chocolate eggs.
