Caramel Meringue Easter Nests

Caramel Meringue Easter Nests ~ Quick, easy and fun Easter treats ! #Easter #EasterTreats
You can get these caramel meringue Easter nests ready in a matter of minutes, if you have the meringue nests already on hand - either store-bought or homemade.

Our supermarket sells meringues in all shapes as well as various sized nests. The ones I am using here is about 5cm {2 inches} in diameter. You can use smaller ones, or even one large meringue, but do remember a filled meringue needs to be eaten as soon as possible after filling, as they tend to go soft and will fall apart.

{The recipe yields 1 cup of Caramel Filling and any leftovers can be kept in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week.}
 
CARAMEL MERINGUE EASTER NESTS

INGREDIENTS:

Meringue Nests

1/2 cup Whipped Cream, unsweetened
1/2 cup Caramel Topping  {I use the Nestle Treat brand}
Green and/or White Coconut
Small Colorful Easter Eggs

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Combine the Whipped Cream and the Caramel - place in the refrigerator for 5 - 10 minutes to firm up a little.
2.) Fill the Meringue Nests with the Caramel mixture - sprinkle with Coconut and arrange 3 small Easter Eggs on top.

Serve as soon as possible but it should keep well for about 2 hours in the refrigerator.
