Chocolate Easter Nests

Coconut Nests are not only cute, but they’re also really tasty. They are made using homemade sun butter cups and topped with chocolatey coconut and mini eggs. So adorable, festive, ! These are a great project to make with kids for Easter or Spring.

Simpler is better when entertaining, it allows to takes the stress out of hosting a gathering. Birds nests are a totally festive way to celebrate Easter. They’re perfect for class parties (sun butter cups are a perfect nut-free treat for school), play dates or any time you need a fun treat that’s not too time consuming. I’m entertaining, I often find that simpler is better; it allows me for more time to enjoy my guests and takes the stress out of hosting a gathering

Only 5 Ingredients

All you need is a few ingredients and minutes to make these fun little Easter nests. Check them out below.

  1. Chocolate chips – I like to use semi sweet chocolate for these Easter nests, but you can use white, dark or milk, whatever is your favorite!
  2. Coconut – We use sweetened shredded coconut.
  3. Coconut oil – Optional
  4. Mini Cadbury eggs – No nest is complete without eggs!
  5. Nut butter cups – homemade or store bought.

Pro Tips for Success

Once assembled, I like to refrigerate them for at least 4 hours to help the chocolate harden.

Use sweetened shredded coconut.

Coconut oil is optional.

Nut butter cups – Use homemade almond butter cups, sun butter cups or store bought peanut butter cups.

Eggs – We used mini Speckled Chocolate Malt balls from Sprouts. Any mini egg shaped candy will just as fine.

Variations

  1. Not a fan of coconut? Try using crushed cornflakes.
  2. Use almond butter or peanut butter instead of sun butter in the sun butter cups recipe. Or use store bought peanut butter cups.
  3. Use jelly beans or Easter M&M’s instead of mini eggs.
  4. Instead of semi sweet chocolate chips, use milk, dark or white chocolate chips.

How to make?

This is one of the most easiest of recipes. You will need store bought peanut butter cups (we used these sun butter cups). Melt chocolate chips and some coconut oil in microwave, stir shredded coconut until you can no longer see any white. Divide on top of the nut butter cups and shape them a rough circle. Press about three (depending on the size of the eggs you are using) candy eggs in the middle. Refrigerate to set.

How long do they keep?

Once you have made your chocolate nests, place them in an airtight container in the fridge. They will keep well for up to a week. It’s great for making ahead before Easter celebrations.
