As I sit here this morning in my favorite couch in the house, I can only reflect on the great baking of last night. Though it was a game of trial and error, I finally came out right... proving that it's okay to do something different.

Easter, along with the hundreds of other candy filled holidays, make my life complete! But, when you spend so much time working out and trying to contain your hardly accomplished physic, it gets a little irritating with the bowl of candy left over from the holidays tempting you in to eating, just one! Today I was scouring the internet, trying to decide the best way to use the confection, atop my fridge, that features sugar as it's main principal ingredient, without just throwing it out or moving it to the office. Where inevitably it would continue to stare, as I went to get my lemon water. So, what do you do? You bake them into delicious goods and ship them off to your friends, family and co-workers, that's what!

Disclaimer:
Now, I should probably tell you that Robin's Eggs happen to be my favorite Easter Treat, so during the holiday I may have searched high and low for these scrumptious little devils.

So after searching and searching, I found a few things that will be used over the next couple of weeks! But today, I am sticking with a beautiful little design that I found on Lauren Conrad's website, for Easter Egg Macaroon Nests! They look to be mighty delicious and fairly simple, so here goes nothing! 


Easter Egg Macaroon Nests



Ingredients:
  • ½ cup butter; melted
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 6 cups shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup Nutella
  • 45 mini chocolate Easter eggs
  • cap full of vanilla extract

     




Instructions:
For the macaroons
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Then, using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar, and salt until it is rich and thick.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, until mixed thoroughly, make sure there is no liquid. Mix in coconut.
  3. Drop your batter, which should be able to stand without liquid coming out of the bottom,onto a cookie sheet by tablespoons, using a scooper. Roll into balls, then make an indent with fingers to resemble a bird’s nest. 
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom and browned in spots on top.
  5. Once completely cooled, spoon a little Nutella into each “nest”. Top with 3 chocolate eggs.

*If the batter seems to be to wet, add more coconut.
Makes about 15 servings.


After a long game of trial and error, I finally figured it out. I just continued to add coconut, like requested and after 3 tries, I finally got them to stand up right! 

What do you think about these little treats? Would you make them?

Sincerely, Shelbi
