Coconut Easter Nests

Hooray for spring! It’s nearly Easter and that means longer days, warmer weather and the promise of summer. We decided to celebrate with these cute little Easter treats based on the traditional cornflake cake, but just a bit more elegant. They’re also really easy and rather delicious.

Instructions

Coconut Easter Nests

1. Start by measuring out the milk, granulated sugar and Sugar and Crumbs Chocolate Milkshake Natural Flavoured Icing Sugar (or any flavour of your choice) into a saucepan. Warm gently over a low heat, stirring until the sugar has completely dissolved.

2. Remove the pan from the heat and stir through the desiccated coconut. Add the egg whites and stir again. You should end up with a thick, sticky mixture.

3. Pr-eheat the oven to 150° C, 140° C fan, 275 F, Gas mark 1.

4. Fill a bun tin with paper cases and then divide the mixture between them. If you have a standard 12-hole bun tin you will need to do two lots. Use a small spoon to make a depression in the middle of each caseful of mixture then place in the oven and bake for 40 minutes.  They are ready when the coconut is golden brown and crispy around the top.

5. Allow the nests to cool completely. You can either remove the cases or leave them on, it’s up to you. I took them off to get the full nest effect. To finish them off just pop a couple of eggs on top of each one.
