Easter Coconut Macaroon Nests

Hi guys!

Sunday is Easter and so today is my last recipe to prepare you for it πŸ˜‰ I almost can’t believe I’ve made more Easter recipes than Christmas ones… Oh boy, I’m not having my priorities straight. But I actually don’t think the amount of posts about a certain holiday should be important. It’s the fun you have doing it that counts πŸ˜€

I know I said Easter was coming in the size of Cupcakes but this last recipe is something different though. I didn’t plan it, I just came across this super awesome Easter idea on Little Sweet Baker where Lily shared her Easter Macaroons and I instantly knew I had to make them! They are cute, festive, super delicious, almost lactose free AND perfect for Easter of course!

Beautiful Easter Coconut Macaroon Nests

Here we go!

What we need:

  • 5 eggs
  • 225 g sugar
  • 275 g dried, grated coconut
  • 4 drops of vanilla aroma
  • 1 orange or mandarine
  • ice cream scoop
  • a casserole
  • a whisk
  • a wooden spoon
  • baking paper
  • some chocolate to melt
  • beautiful chocolate eggs

Easter Nests

How to:

  1. Preheat the oven at 180Β°C.
  2. Split the eggs. We only need the eggwhites.
  3. Put the sugar and the eggwhites in a casserole. Put the casserole on the stove but don’t cook it, just heat it.
  4. Mix the eggwhites and the sugar until the sugar is absorbed and the mixture gets a white, foam-like texture.
  5. Add the dried coconut to the mixture. Mix it well together until it’s a smooth batter.
  6. Add the drops of vanilla aroma to it.
  7. Scrape the skin of the orange/mandarine and add it to the batter. The scrapings will give the macaroons a fresh touch.
  8. Use the ice cream scoop to make perfect little balls of coconut deliciousness.
  9. Put them on a baking paper and push your thumb in the middle of the coconut macaroon to make it look like a little birds nest.
  10. Bake them for about 15 minutes.Β If the macaroons are a little brown on top or on the sides in this case, they’re done!
  11. Melt some chocolate and fill your nests with it.
  12. Place some beautiful Easter eggs in your nest.
  13. Present these beauties to your guests!
