March 13, 2012

Birds Nest Rolo Pretzels are a cute, easy to make Easter treat. And not only are these adorable but they are delicious!  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!
