Ingredients
  • 1 cup (6-ounces) white chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening, plain or butter-flavor
  • 2 cups (about 5-ounces) pretzel sticks, broken into bite-size pieces

Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Place the white chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in microwave oven on 50% power until melted, about 1 - 1½ minutes. Pour the melted chocolate over the pretzels and mix to combine.

  4. Top each nest with 3 mini chocolate eggs and enjoy!
Notes
Microwaves vary so be sure to monitor the chocolate as too much heat will cause it to seize. Stir after each 15-second interval.
