Chocolate Coconut Almond Easter Egg Nests

If you love Almond Joy candy bars, this cute Easter treat is for you!!

If you are an Almond Joy fan, you are going to LOVE this. Because these sweet little Easter egg nests are made up of coconut, sliced almonds, and chocolate; and they taste just like an Almond Joy!

But SO much easier to make. (Trust me, I’ve made Almond Joy candies!)

Plus, these little coconutty cups are topped with cute, itty, bitty Easter eggs and a Peep right on top. These are just so darling and so easy.

All you’ll need is a muffin tin, paper liners, a few ingredients, and about 10 minutes!

Melt the chocolat melting candy according to the directions on the packgage. Once smooth and melted, pour it over the almonds and coconut. Stir to coat well.

Scoop 1/4 cup of the mixture into each muffin tin liner. Gently press down in the center with the back of a rounded spoon to create the nest.
