Reviews for Bird Nests
"These are THE most adorable treats. The salty-sweet of the pretzels, not to mention the 'ADORABLE' factor, have made them a delightful surprise for every family member, young and old alike. It all came together quite easily, and will be a must-have for years to come! Thanks for this ingenious and creative delight!"
"easy ..easy...My 4 yr old broke sticks in half..I found "nest" easier to assemble that way. I used multi colored "chicks" for his class! I was surprised how quick and easy!!"
"A new Easter tradition in our house! I may break the pretzel sticks in half next time to make a little smaller nest. Our 3 kids loved "decorating" them almost as much as eating them!"
"I have a similar bird nest design but I use the HERSHEY'S No-Bake Butterscotch Haystack recipe, Peeps, and Jelly Beans. They are an Easter favorite!"
"These were sooo good, I made it with my 7yr old sister and she loved making them. They couldnt have been easier or yummier!!!"
