  • Heat oven to 250ºF.
  • Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in medium bowl with mixer on high speed 5 min. or until mixture forms soft peaks. Add sugar, 1 Tbsp. at a time, beating constantly after each addition until stiff peaks form. Beat additional 3 min. or until mixture is glossy. Gently stir in half the coconut.
  • Spoon egg white mixture into 10 mounds on each of 2 parchment-covered baking sheets. Use back of spoon to shape each into 2-1/2-inch round, then make depression in centre of each mound to resemble nest. Sprinkle remaining coconut around edges; press gently into egg white mixture to secure.
  • Bake 50 min. to 1 hour or until meringues are dry and coconut is golden brown. Cool completely on baking sheets. Meanwhile, beat pudding mix and milk with whisk 2 min. (Pudding will be thick.) Stir in Cool Whip. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Spoon pudding mixture into meringue nests just before serving; top with almonds.


Prepare using your favourite flavour of Jell-O Instant Pudding.
