These coconut macaroons are deliciously crispy on the outside and delightfully chewy on the inside.


  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs (or any type of Easter candy)


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, egg white, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir in the coconut and mix well.
  3. Using a large cookie scoop or rounded tablespoons, drop 12 cookie mounds onto the prepared baking sheet. Gently press down with your thumb and form cookies into a shape of a nest.
  4. Bake for 17 – 20 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Let cool completely.
  5. Spread a teaspoon of Nutella on each cookie and decorate with candies.
