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.
