3 large egg whites, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 and 1/2 cup shredded coconut
green food coloring
24 Cadbury Eggs
Grease a baking sheet and line with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 350F.
Starting at low speed, beat the egg whites in a medium bowl until they start to foam. Then turn the speed to medium speed, beat until the egg whites form stiff, glossy peaks. Add the extract and food coloring.
Fold in the powdered sugar and coconut with a spatula. Try to mix as little as possible.
Use a large cookie scoop or ice cream scoop to scoop the batter on the pan. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the edges start to brown slightly.
Immediately when they come out make an indent with a spoon. Let rest for 5 minutes and the finish cooling on wire racks. Fill with Cadbury eggs.
