Peeps Nests Easter Craft Project

Peep peep! This is the perfect Easter treat! In this recipe, Chicks roost happily on jelly-bean eggs atop coconut macaroon nests. Serve these cute cookies for dessert, or use them as table favors for a spring feast. Speckled jelly beans give you the most realistic look, but any color will do the trick.

Difficulty LevelEdit


Supplies NeededEdit


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 36 jelly beans
  • 12 yellow or pink PEEPS® Chicks


Step One: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a baking sheet or line with parchment baking paper.
Step Two: In a bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla until pale and frothy, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the coconut and flour until well blended.
Step Three: To make the nests, make 12 mounds of about 3 tablespoons batter each, placing them about 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Use a spoon to spread each mound into a 2 1/2-inch circle with a depression in the center.
Step Four: Bake until the nests are golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and carefully press 3 jelly beans into the center of each nest. Use a spatula to transfer the nests to a wire rack to cool completely. Store the nests in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. Top each nest with a Chick just before serving.
