Are you looking for a cute, simple Easter treat to make this year?  Then these may just be exactly what you are looking for!  These are not only adorable but they are delicious and so easy to make.  They are fun for kids and adults alike.  They are simply a salted mini pretzel topped with a melted rolo, 3 pastel colored Sixlets candies and sweetened toasted coconut.  They are a bite size, crunchy, chocolaty, coconut and caramel delight!  I hope you enjoy and have a great Easter!

Bird’s Nest Rolo Pretzels

Ingredients
