Recipe for 15 Minute No-Bake Easter Nests


If you’re short on time, but the kids want to help make Easter treats, try these quick and easy No-Bake Easter Nests. They start with mini donuts available at any grocery store; you may use plain sugared, cinnamon, chocolate, or a mixture. If you have time, you can make your own Buttercream Frosting, but canned frosting can also be used. Whichever frosting you choose to use, just stir in a little green food coloring, spread it on the donuts, then top with mini chocolate eggs. For a variation that looks even more like a nest (we’re using our imagination here, of course), put a few drops of green food coloring in a jar, add 1/2 cup sweetened, flaked coconut, and shake until the coconut is tinted – then sprinkle it on the frosting before adding the chocolate eggs.
””
The total hands-on time for these cute treats is only between 15 and 30 minutes depending how much the kids help; clean-up is fast too.

15 Minute No-Bake Easter Nests


24 Mini Nests

24 mini cake donuts coated with powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, chocolate, or a mixture of all three
2 cups vanilla frosting, canned or homemade
Green paste food coloring
8 ounces Cadbury Mini Eggs, or pastel Peanut M&M's, or Reese's Pieces Pastel Eggs
  1. Arrange the mini donuts on a large platter.

  2. Mix the frosting with enough food coloring to resemble the color of grass.

  3. Using about a tablespoon of frosting for each nest, spread green frosting on the donuts.

  4. Top each donut with three of the mini eggs in different colors.

  5. Let sit at room temperature until the frosting is set, then transfer to an airtight container.
