How to Make Sugar Free Easter Nests

Helpful Tips and FAQs

Substitutions for the eggs

If you love the nest idea but cannot get the candy we used for our mini eggs, here are a few ideas for substitutions.

In the recipe video and recipe, we use Smart Sweets Jelly Eggs. I have also used Russell Stover Sugar-Free Candy Coated Peanuts. I like them for their brightly coloured appearance. If you have a nut allergy, you could use, Sugar Free Jelly Belly Jelly Beans.

Make your own chocolate eggs – Using a silicone mini egg mould, pour in some melted white chocolate and let the eggs set. Easy Peasy! For coloured eggs, add a bit of food colouring (gel or paste) to the melted chocolate before making the eggs.

Fruit – Berries, such as small strawberries, blueberries, mulberries, raspberries, cranberries and Goji berries make great substitutions for the candy eggs.

Storing and Freezing Recommendations

Store the sugar free Easter nests in an airtight container refrigerated for up to 5 days.

Our Easter Nest cookies can also be frozen. Freeze without eggs, in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic wrap for up to one month.
