Chocolate Macaroon Nests with Easter Eggs

Macaroons are my favorite cookie and this chocolate version is a great recipe for crafting delicious edible Easter nests that are sure to impress.


Ingredients:

3 cups flaked sweetened coconut

6 tablespoons all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

3 large egg whites

Small candy Easter eggs

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and lightly spray with a non-stick cooking spray.

Toss coconut with flour, cocoa, and sweetened condensed milk until thoroughly mixed and coconut is completely coated.

Beat egg whites in a clean bowl on high speed until stiff. Gently fold egg whites into coconut mixture.

Form nests using 2 heaping tablespoons of dough and place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove cookies from oven and cool thoroughly.

Place candy Easter eggs in nest and serve 'em up!

To make them even more decorative place each nest in a paper candy cup.
