PREHEAT oven to 200° F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.



BEAT egg whites in large mixer bowl on low speed until frothy. Add cream of tartar; increase speed to medium-high and beat for 1 to 2 minutes or until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar on high speed until stiff peaks form. Add vanilla extract and food coloring; beat until combined.



SPOON meringue into pastry bag fitted with a ½-inch tip or gallon-size food storage bag with ½-inch tip snipped from corner of bag. Pipe meringue into 3-inch circles about 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets (7 nests per baking sheet).



BAKE both baking sheets at the same time for 1 hour, 45 minutes to 2 hours or until dry and crisp. Turn off oven; crack the door open and leave baking sheets inside until the oven has completely cooled. Remove from oven; with spatula, gently lift meringue nests from parchment. Meringues can be stored covered at room temperature for a few days.



FILL each nest with Jelly Beans, Bunny Gummies and NestEggs.
