Chocolate Pretzel Easter Nests

It's almost Easter, and Easter means chocolate, right? I've already made some Easter cupcakes so I thought I should make some obligatory nests too.

I absolutely love chocolate covered pretzels and I thought that breaking some pretzels up and mixing them with melted chocolate would make the nests look like messy bird nests. Of course, doing this whole paleo diet thing I can't eat the damn things can I, so the job of eating them has been given to the husband and kids, and a few for a friend's little boy who hasn't got a lot of appetite at the moment due to chemotherapy treatment.

Chocolate Pretzel Easter Nests - makes 12

250g milk chocolate or chocolate cake covering (sets more quickly than chocolate)
150g pretzels, broken up (the salted ones - DO NOT use the sour cream ones!)
Mini eggs

  • Melt the chocolate in a microwaveable bowl, in short bursts, stirring regularly
  • Stir the pretzels in, mixing well
  • Line a cupcake pan with cupcake cases
  • Divide the mixture between the cases & pop some mini eggs into the centre of the nests
  • Refrigerate until set

This is my entry to the Center Parcs and Tots 100 April challenge. If I’m chosen, I would like to visit Sherwood Forest. I was inspired to make these nests after reading the tips from Center Parcs Chief Creative Chef : "Mix some cereal, such as bran or broken up wheat, together with some melted chocolate and form the mixture in to nest-like shapes, leaving to cool for a finished nest"
