Bird's Nest Treats

Aren't these little bird's nests the cutest things ever?

They are so easy, so cute, and so fun to make. The best part is... you only need a few ingredients!



Are you ready to make some...

The first thing you want to do is melt two packages of white chocolate chips.



Once all of the chips are melted, take out about 1/2 cup and sit it off to the side. Add in about 12 ounces of pretzels to the remaining chocolate. Stir until they are all coated.



Line baking sheets (I used two) with waxed paper. Drop little pretzel nests onto the paper. Spread them out so that they are big enough to put the peep on them (about 3 inches).



Put a peep into the reserved chocolate for a little swim.



Stick it onto the bird's nest. Add a few robin's eggs to the bird's nest.



Here is the finished product! Enjoy!




Ingredients:

2 packages white chocolate chips
12 oz. pretzel sticks
peeps (20)
robin's eggs

Love this idea! This is the perfect use for the free Peeps I got at CVS a few weeks back.

Katie said...

@ Heather- Put those peeps to great use. They aren't much good plain...at least I don't like them.

Thank you Katie! This is perfect for our family Easter gathering. The grandchildren are going to love these. Also the adults!

Katie said...

@ Desi- I'm with ya...not a peep lover. I feed them to the dog, he loves them :)

@ Lee Ann- It's totally fun for adults...I guess I am a kid at heart

@ Kathy- I know the grandkids will love them, but yes...pretzels and chocolate is great for adults too :)

Katie- these really are adorable. I don't buy any peeps this year because I was afraid that I might eat the whole package in on sitting!

Thanks so much for linking up.
