Easter egg turned cupcake is what you will think of when you see these bright and colorful little treats. Using chocolate Easter egg candies as toppings is easy and gives them a beautiful pastel color scheme which matches perfectly with the classic colors of Easter. These Coconut Nest Cupcakes are made with a scrumptious vanilla cupcake recipe and then topped with toasted coconut shreds. It is a simple but elegant recipe.

Forget chocolate and peanut butter — the winning combination with these Easter nest cupcakes is chocolate and coconut! The simple chocolate cupcake base (the batter is made from bittersweet chocolate, eggs, butter, sugar, vanilla extract and flour) are topped with a lucious coconut buttercream frosting. What makes them “Easter nest” cupcakes, you ask? The toasted, flaked coconut placed atop of the frosting in a circle, and the egg shaped pralines placed in the center of each, of course!
