Our spring break weather could not have been nicer.
It allowed for plenty of time to do things outside,
as well as opening the windows to let in the fresh air.
It made me want to "Springify" my house.
It made me want to set a "Springarific" tablescape.
It made me want to make "Springtaculous" treats.
So I did.
I simply used pretzels and coconut, covered in chocolate
to make two kinds...
of birds nests.
I then added candy eggs.
Springtaculously easy as well!
I used my tablespoon measuring spoon to make a little round groove in each nest.
But I found it was just a smite too big for the small nests,
so I switched to the half tablespoon size.
Perfect little wells in the small nests!
I have no measurements to share.
I simply used half my bag of chocolate melts and melted them.
To that I added probably half the bag of coconut.
I wanted it to be so that it was not runny...but I also
wanted it thick enough to be able to form into nests.
I dropped big spoonfulls of the coconut/chocolate mixture
onto foil (because I was out of wax paper).
I then went back through and made my nest wells.
Then I put my candy eggs inside each nest.
For the pretzels, I did the exact same thing.
I wanted my pretzel nests to be bigger, and using
the pretzels and chocolate allowed that.
I just kept forming the pretzels into a nest look
with my hands until I was satisfied.
I then added the eggs to the pretzel nests as well.
