Chocolate and Peanut Butter Nests for Easter

Adapted from Chef in Training
~from Savoring Time in the Kitchen

Makes 6 nests

1 cup dark chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips)
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 cup thin pretzels crushed or shoestring potatoes crushed
Small candy eggs (I used M&M Easter peanut butter eggs)
Peeps or Marzipan Chicks

Melt chocolate and peanut butter chips together in a microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, until completed melted.

Stir in crushed pretzels or shoestring potatoes.

Spray muffin tins with non-stick spray. (I used non-stick muffin tins and also sprayed them with Baker's Joy)

Drop by spoonfuls into a greased muffin tin and mold into nest shapes with a spoon.

Place Peeps or marzipan figures and candy eggs in nests while still warm.

Refrigerate for at least one hour or more until completely set. Run a very thin knife around the edge of the nests to lift and remove from the tin. If a piece breaks, you can always melt a little more chocolate to glue it back on.
