    Recipe Link:

    2 large egg whites

    2 cups shredded sweetened coconut

    1/3 cup granulated sugar

    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

    1/8 teaspoon salt

    4 colors of food coloring (optional)

    12 NESTLÉ CRUNCH or BUTTERFINGER NestEggs, unwrapped

    PREHEAT oven to 325° F. Lightly grease and flour baking sheet.

    WHISK egg whites until frothy in medium bowl. Stir in coconut, sugar, flour, vanilla extract and salt until well blended. Divide coconut mixture into 4 bowls. Add 1 to 2 drops different color food coloring to each bowl; mix until colors are dispersed evenly. Drop by tablespoonfuls into 12 mounds 1 1/2 inches apart. Press centers in slightly to form nests.

    BAKE for 20 to 22 minutes or until set and lightly golden brown. Remove baking sheet to a wire rack. Cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes; transfer nests to wire rack to cool completely. Place 1 Nestlé NestEgg in each nest before serving.

    Yields 12 cookies
