These no bake chocolate coconut nests are such an easy Easter treat only require three ingredients: shredded coconut, chocolate chips and candy eggs! Vegan and gluten-free.
Of all treats I’ve been making lately, and there have been quite a few, these little nests are Isaac’s favorite! I’m pumped because they’re also the easiest and fastest to make. Plus they involve my favorite Easter candy ever, Cadbury Mini Eggs.
These chocolate nests are inspired by the traditional chocolate nest candies. Except these are not made with chow mein noodles and corn syrup. You’re welcome! Whether these are for you or kiddos in your life, no one needs to feel guilty about snacking on these. They are the cutest little treat for Easter or springtime in general.

How to Make Coconut Chocolate Nests
You’ll start by toasting your coconut. Either spread the shredded coconut on a baking sheet or toast in a saucepan. No matter which method you choose, pay close attention! Shredded coconut can burn easily so don’t get distracted.
After your coconut is done toasting (remember, watch it carefully), let it cool while you melt the chocolate. You’ll mix the melted chocolate with cooled shredded coconut in a medium bowl and then scoop 2-3 Tablespoons of the mixture to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and roughly shape into a nest.
Add 2-3 candy eggs to each nest and let sit at room temperature or pop into the refrigerator to speed up the process.
