No Photo


  • 8 eggs
  • 1 small box gelatin (any flavor)
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup milk


  1. Using a skewer or cake tester, make 1/2-inch hole in one end of each egg shell. Shake eggs out, reserving one egg. Rinse shells thoroughly with cold water and place in an egg carton.
  2. Beat reserved egg slightly; blend in gelatin. Add boiling water and stir until gelatin is dissolved. Add milk and pour carefully into egg shells.
  3. Chill until firm (about 4 hours).
  4. Crack shells slightly. Dip quickly in warm water and peel off shell.
  5. Arrange "eggs" in nests of green tinted flake coconut.
