These are so cute and are also easy enough for small children to help prepare. Use candy-coated Easter eggs or different coloured jelly beans to decorate nests.


Serves: 10 

  • 3 drops green food colouring
  • 1/2 teaspoon milk
  • 1 1/3 cups (70g) shredded coconut
  • 200g white chocolate
  • 20-30 small Easter eggs

Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. In a small bowl, mix food colouring with milk; add coconut and mix until evenly tinted; set aside.
  2. Melt the chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave, stirring every 15 to 30 seconds until smooth. Mix with coconut mixture and place by spoonfuls on waxed paper. Shape mixture like a bird's nest, making a slight indentation in the centre of each one – but don’t press too hard.
  3. Cool completely and place 2 or 3 little Easter eggs in the centre of each nest.
