Yummy Edible Nests

Level: Easy! Time: 30 min

I've seen 'edible' nest made out of chow-mein noodles and chocolate, and they are super cute, but I don't consider them 'edible!' I wanted to make a cute nest that also tasted good! So I modified this recipe I got from my sister, she uses it to make home made 'almond joys,' but I omitted the chocolate covering, and added mini cadbury eggs instead. What's not to love about coconut, chocolate, and sugar? Here you go!

4 egg whites
1 Cup Sugar
6 Tbls Flour
4 Cups Sweetened, Shredded coconut

Oven: 350

Mix Egg whites, Sugar, and flour until well blended. About 3 min. You do not need to form still peaks. Stir in Coconut. Prep cookie sheet with PARCHMENT PAPER. (This is the most important step...I tried it without, and ruined a whole batch!) Drop cookies onto in a round shape. Bake aprox. 12 min, or until coconut is lightly browned. Remove from oven and press 3 candy eggs into cookie so it resembles a nest.

See, super easy, and super yummy! Way better than crunchy chow-mein and chocolate. Enjoy, and let me know what you think!

  1. Thank you. That is such a sweet food craft.

  2. yum! i actually made some of the chow mein noodle nest but I just made them like I was making rice krispie treats--just used the noodles in place of the cereal--they actually were really yummy! I like the toasted coconut idea too--i think Im going to make some carrotcake cupcakes and toast some coconut and make the frosting and topping look like a nest! love all your ideas!!
