Coconut macaroons is very easy to make but this recipe has got to be the easiest and it’s egg-free. In the spirit of Easter fun, I made the coconut macaroons into cute little nests and use some M&M peanuts candies for “eggs”.
get a heaping scoop-full of coconut mixture
use the rounded back of the ice cream scoop to make indentation in the center of the macaroons
bake until the macaroons are toasted..these of course are already good to eat but..
just for fun, I made it into these…sooo cute, right?!
