Yesterday I headed to the store to pick up the supplies: coconut and Cadbury Mini Eggs…
Hmmm, the Cadbury Mini Eggs are already open. That’s weird
First I toasted the coconut, because only vampire birds have nests this color…
Spread it in one thin layer on a baking sheet. Toast at 350 degrees for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Watch it carefully as it can burn. The coconut should be toasted to a J-Wow like tan.
If you went all the way to Snooki you went too far…
Once it’s nice and toasty set it aside to cool.
Fold the toasted coconut into the egg whites.
Form big balls of the coconut mix with a large spoon and place on a well sprayed/oiled cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes. Watch closely as the coconut is already toasty!
Place coconut macaroons birds nests on a plate and allow to cool.
Create a small “bed” in the middle of the birds nest and gently lay 3 eggs in it.
Watch carefully for any cracks in the eggs. This means they are about to hatch and you should eat them immediately to prevent this.
I spot a crack! Nom nom nom…
