Easy last-minute Easter food: Chocolate Pretzel Birds Nests recipe

Chocolate Pretzel Bird Nests - Easy Easter Food
Just when I thought I wasn't going to take on any new DIY Easter craft ideas, I get the itch.  With Easter being less than a week away, I wasn't sure what kind of Easter-themed craft or treat I could pull together at the last minute.  But then I had the idea for a really easy Easter dessert that I could involve the kids in making: Chocolate Pretzel Bird Nests.  And guess what?  They only have three ingredients!  That's just my kind of recipe. 
What you need:
  • Place the pretzel sticks in a large mixing bowl
  • Melt the chocolate candy melts according to their directions, and pour over the pretzels

  • Stir gently until the pretzels are completely coated with the melted candy

Here's where you get the kids involved!

  • Scoop chocolate covered pretzels into the cups of the silicon baking mold.  You may need to break them up a bit in order to shape them like nests.

  • Once you make your desired amount of nests, place the baking mold in the fridge so that the candy coating hardens.  This should take about 15 minutes.
  • Remove the nests from the baking molds (this is where the silicon molds come in really handy), and add a few candy eggs to the center of each nest

Et voila!  How cute are these?

The salty/sweet combo makes them delicious, too.  I'm kind of embarrassed to tell you how long it took the four of us to eat 24 of these nests.  Let's just say we didn't need to get rid of any to any of the neighbors.
