Adorable Easter Bird Nests




Who doesn’t love Peeps and Jelly Beans? The kids will love these adorable gluten-free bird nests. Great family activity! Check out the recipe…


  • 1 Geefree Puff Pastry Dough

  • Gluten Free flour for dusting

  • 1 Box of Yellow Peeps (or any color/flavor you like)

  • Jelly Beans (any color, shape, flavor, etc.)

  • 1 Bag Sweetened Shredded Coconut

  • Green Food Coloring

  • Pudding, Pastry Cream, Whipped Cream, (again, whatever you’d like to fill the nest with)

  • Additional Tools
  • Cupcake pan

  • Biscuit/Large Cookie Cutters


  • Have cream filling ready and chilled.

  • Bring dough to room temperature. Preheat oven to 375°F.

  • Dust the countertop. Take dough and roll it out to approx. 1/8” thick.

  • Use a non-stick spray on the bottom of the cupcake pan. Using the biscuit cutter, cut circles then form them onto the bottom of the cupcake pans.

  • Make sure you dock the nests so they don’t puff. You can use the tines of a fork. Bake them for 25-30 or until golden brown. Cool completely.

  • While cooling take the coconut and add 1-2 drops of the green coloring. I use gloves for this so I can mix it well without turning my hands green.

  • Fill each nest with “filling”, then sprinkle with coconut and top them peeps, jellybeans, anything you like.
