Everyone has seen the lovely edible egg baskets that often adorn the covers of spring holiday magazines, but they're often unsuitable for restrictive diets; these No-Bake Dark Chocolate Easter Egg Nests are here to offer a healthier alternative that will still look just as great. Made from a base of coconut shards, the No-Bake Dark Chocolate Easter Egg Nests require that you roast the shredded coconut until golden brown.

From here, dark chocolate is melted in a double boiler and added to the coconut. After allowing to cool slightly, the mixture is formed into nest-like formations.

To put the finishing touch on the No-Bake Dark Chocolate Easter Egg Nests, bakers can add fruit or small nuts to them to complete the delicious illusion.
