Have you seen our cute Easter Rice Krispie Robins Nests made from Rice Krispie Treats? Well these are even easier (if that is even possible!!)
One of my favorite things to do is go to the movie with a big bucket of popcorn and a box of M&M’s. That must be why I am always partial to the sweet and salty combination. I can pass up ice cream any time, but give me some salt and chocolate and I am done for!
As soon as the Easter crafts and recipes start hitting Facebook and Pinterest, I am happy! It means that Spring is around the corner, which means warmer weather and the end of the Winter hibernation.
Spring also means all things sweet and pastel! I love to create food crafts and these Chocolate Easter Birds Nests are all of these things rolled into one! Sweet, pastel and cute treats!

Chocolate Easter Birds Nests
- 2 cups pretzels (broken into little pieces)
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
- Buttercream frosting
- Green food coloring
- Candy eggs
Grease your muffin tin making sure to coat each section with either butter or cooking spray
Using the double boiler method, melt chocolate chips OR carefully melt them in the microwave (but stir often). Remove from heat and fold in pretzels.
Scoop and place coated pretzels in the muffin tin. You will want to gently press them in to the muffin tin, forming the shape of a nest. Use your thumb or the rounded end of a wooden spoon to indent the center of the treat.
Allow to cool completely (about 1 hour).
While the nests are cooling and setting, mix the green food coloring in to the buttercream frosting, until you achieve the desired color.
Remove the nests from the muffin tin. Frost the center and add candy eggs. Enjoy!
