Perfect for any holiday

I love macaroons, so when I made these the first time, it was Christmas time - no nestle crunch eggs ... but a chocolate Kiss was a perfect topping for them. Very festive and delicious too! Thank you!

These are so cute and so good. They are easy to make. I didn't have any Nesteggs so I used 2 jelly beans instead, the kids were all just as happy and always ask me to make them some more.

Nest Egg Macaroons

A very good cookie, however if it is not around the Easter season, there are no Nestles Butterfinger Eggs, I put melted morsels in the center of each one.
