Bird Nests

Don't know what to do with those leftover Peeps--what leftover Peeps, you say? Whether they're a favorite around your house and the first candy gobbled up or the last piece eaten, this kid-friendly recipe will make them even more popular.

2) 10 oz. packages of white baking chips
1) 10 oz. package of pretzel sticks
1) package of candy eggs (I used Peanut butter M and M's)
25 Peep candy birds

Melt the baking chips. Set aside 1/2 cup. Stir pretzel sticks into chocolate until well coated.

Scoop 25 nests onto waxed paper; use two forks to arrange coated pretzels into a 3 inch circle. Dip a Peep candy bird into melted chocolate and place onto each nest. Use melted chocolate to attach candy eggs.
