I saw these Bird Nest Cookies the other day over at Tip Junkie and tried them out last night. They could not be any easier. Tip Junkie made hers with Chow Mein Noodles and Butterscotch Morsels. I instead used Pretzels (got to love the salt with the sweet) and Semisweet Baker’s Chocolate.
I did a test batch to start and only made four nests. I melted 2 of the Baking Chocolate Squares and mixed in a couple handfuls of broken pretzel sticks and mixed them together till well coated. Then I dropped some of the mixture onto a piece of parchment paper and formed into a nest shape. Then I added 3 pretty blue Jelly Belly Jelly Beans for the eggs. M and M’s would work here too or any egg shaped candy.
These are a fun and easy Spring time treat and just in time for Easter.
And thanks to everyone for all the kind comments to my posts earlier this week. Life got back to normal once the new hot water heater was installed. Husband is back from his business trip and the electricity will never be taken for granted again! Furniture Market appears to have been a busy one which is good news for our area. I am beat and so glad it’s Friday!! Have a fun weekend everyone!
