Blue Bird Trail Mix

Monday, March 18, 2013
 I made some baskets I'll share tomorrow, and I wanted to fill them with something that looks like a nest.  I started out with some trail mix and coconuts.....then added candy coated 'eggs', and then I had the idea for these pretzel birds.  Why not? 
I dyed some white chocolate blue with one drop of chocolate. 
 After dipping the pretzel, I like to set the bottom on a fork and tap it so the excess falls away and the top looks smooth.  I usually put it off the fork onto wax paper with the edge of a knife. 
I dipped the bottom in orange melted chocolate and added some mini chocolate chips for eyes.  Birds and their nest.....kinda cute.
