Birds nest cookies are a delightful dessert to make for Easter. Not only are they incredibly easy to make, but they are bright, colorful and the kids are going to absolutely love them. The only difficulty will be keeping little hands away from eating all of them too quickly!
Bird’s nest cookies make easy party food and can be made following our basic chocolate cookie recipe.
After the cookies have been made, the nest is simply added with icing and coconut, and filled with your favourite kind of mini eggs. Then hey presto….you are done!
These cookies will look adorable on any dessert table and will brighten up any space. For these cookies I used jelly beans to give a vibrant color, but also to provide a different taste on the palate. Mini chocolate eggs would however also work just as well if you would rather stick with chocolate.
If you would like some fun in the kitchen, let the kids help you out with baking them. They will love decorating the bird’s nest cookies and creating different colour combinations.
Love this idea and looking for some other treats to bake with the kids this Easter? How about some delicious honey joys, which can also be made into adorable bird’s nests filled with eggs.
