Little Brownie Bird Nests


Need an idea of how to use up leftover Easter candy?

Lauren was over today and I was looking for something special to do with her. She loves to bake.

I had a bag of Cadbury eggs leftover from Easter, and this was a fun way to use them.

I used a brownie mix (you can make your own favorite brownie recipe if you choose)

and a tub of Coconut Pecan icing (again, you can opt to make your own.)

Mix up the brownie mix according to directions on the package.

We used colorful silicone cupcake liners, but you can also just grease your muffin tins if you prefer.

Fill up 2/3 of the way with batter and bake for 22 minutes.


After they cool, frost with coconut pecan icing and place a few “bird” eggs on top of each brownie nest.
