No-Fail Toasted Coconut & Birds Nests Recipe

Looking for a fun and easy design feature for your Easter or Passover family celebration. These birds nests sculpted from white chocolate and coconut are the perfect little perch for a jelly bean or Cadbury egg (my fav). You can’t mess them up and they are fun for the kiddos.

Toasting Coconut


Description

For a deep, rich flavor, toast the coconut flakes. 


Ingredients

Coconut flakes


Instructions

Notes

Bakers coconut is my preferred brand.  It’s always moist, never dry like a lot of store brands I have tried.

Fresh coconut can be toasted as well.  Grate the coconut and toast per above directions.

I love the adorable bird’s nests to decorate cake or cupcakes for spring, Easter or just because. They are easy and quick to make.

White Chocolate Toasted Coconut Birds Nests


Ingredients


Instructions

Notes

Untoasted coconut that has been tinted green can be used in place of toasted coconut.  Toss coconut in edible green food color.

The ingredient measurements are just a suggestion.  The amount of ingredients you need will depend on the number of nests you make and the size you make them.

These make a cut cupcake topper too!
