Easter is right around the corner and I wanted to make something unique to share on the blog. Everyone and their mother has made birds nest cupcakes, cookies, cakes… heck, I’ve even made Easter basket egg nest cupcakes! So, I knew I wanted to come up with something I’ve never seen before and so these Birds Nest Cookies were born!
My favorite sugar cookie cut out with a scalloped edge round cookie cutter topped with a rose of vanilla buttercream… then on top of that rose, a dark chocolate buttercream eggs nest filled with speckled Easter egg M&M candies. Simple, unique and PERFECT for Spring or Easter.
You could easily use any kind of candy to top these cookies too. Jelly beans, other chocolate shaped eggs… maybe even some chicks or PEEPS! The possibilities are endless!
