Easter Egg In A Nest !

Colleen Sowa


These are so cute!

They look like a little bird's egg(s) in a nest!

My grandchildren love to make these with me. It is a fun Easter project to do with small children a few days before Easter to keep them busy. The kids like to make these and bring them to school for a treat.

10 Min


5 Min




1 pkg
round shaped pretzels (or waffle pretzels round or square shape)
1 - 2 pkg
hershey's kisses (chocolate or dark chocolate)
1 pkg
pastel colored m & m candies or pastel egg shaped reeses pieces

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

Place parchment paper on baking sheet.
Unwrap the Hershey's Kisses and set aside until needed.
Put the pretzels on the baking sheet leaving a minimal amount of space between them (you can put quite a few on a baking sheet).
Put one Hershey's Kiss in the center of each pretzel.
Put baking sheet of prepared pretzels into the oven for about 4 - 6 minutes.
Remove the baking sheet from oven, put two M & M candy on each Hershey's Kiss with the writing side down, or one egg shaped Reeses Pieces. Gently press the M & M or Reeses Pieces down to "seat it into the chocolate and to press the chocolate into the pretzel.
Put the baking sheet into the freezer for a few minutes to "set" the chocolate.

Once the candies are "set" you can remove them from the parchment and put in airtight container or zipper bags.
