These chocolate macaroons are perfect for spring with pastel jelly beans resting inside their nest-like shape. Try 'em any time of the year, and add your favorite candy pieces to the delectable confections.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (7-ounce) bag sweetened flaked coconut
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2/3 cup (4 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 60 pastel jelly beans

What to Do

  1. Stir together coconut and sugar in a large bowl. Set aside. Microwave chocolate chips in a microwave-safe 1-quart bowl at HIGH 1-1/2 minutes, stirring twice. Let stand on counter to cool slightly.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together egg whites, vanilla, and salt. Stir in melted chocolate. Pour into coconut mixture, stirring well.
  3. Line baking sheets with lightly greased parchment paper. Drop coconut mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Make an indentation in the middle of each mound with thumb to form a nest.
  4. Bake 14 minutes or until bottoms are crisp. (Centers will be soft.) Remove from oven; press 3 jelly beans into center of each nest. Cool 10 minutes on prepared baking sheet. Remove to wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
