Toasted Coconut Egg Nests

To say I have a bad memory is an understatement. I’m pretty sure my first memory was somewhere around the age of five or six, no joke. However, there are certain things that will always stay prevalent in my mind and they are the little touches my mom added to every holiday to make it special. From making popcorn balls and watching It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown every October to crafting elaborate twisted candy cane cookies every December, she made each holiday magical and something to look forward to. These toasted coconut egg nests are no exception. Every March when Easter rolled around, my mom would turn our kitchen into a pastel-frenzied egg-decorating cookie-fashioning war zone complete with this savory treat. I’m still trying to understand how she had five kids in the kitchen at once while making it a unique and fun experience for all of us.. a woman of many talents, I digress.

These “cookies” can be whipped up in a pinch, perfect as a last minute hosting gift. The sweet crunch of coconut combined with the savory white chocolate it simply irresistible. Lucas and I will be having my parents over this Easter to celebrate and it didn’t feel right without this timeless treat, so I pulled together a batch in preparation of Sunday’s festivities. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Happy Good Friday!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spread out coconut on cookie sheet in a single layer and place in oven. Pull out sheet and stir coconut around and place back in oven in 5 minute intervals until completely toasted and browned.
  2. Microwave white chocolate chips in 30 second intervals until melted. Slowly add in toasted coconut to the melted chocolates until combined, making sure not to add all the coconut as it needs a good layer of chocolate to adhere.
  3. Drop spoonfuls of chocolate coconut mixture on wax paper, pressing down in the middle to create "nest" shape. Place a few candies of choice in the center to resemble eggs. Let harden in fridge for 10 minutes before removing and displaying on plate.
