Easter Birds' Nests (As Seen on T.V.)

I have a confession to make about these chocolate-covered pretzels.  My chocolate seized up.  Yikes!!         I have made chocolate-covered pretzels many times before, and this has never, ever happened.  It seems I let my water get too hot and the moisture caused the chocolate to seize up.  Lesson learned!!  Don't let this happen to you!

Hey, but they still turned out cute, and tasted fine.

To make these cute little nests, melt Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips in a bowl over a pan of simmering water.  Simmering water is the key here.  Unfortunately, I let mine come to a boil.  (Too many irons in the fire.)  You can also melt your chocolate in the microwave oven.  Dip the pretzels in the chocolate to cover them, and stack them to look like a bird's nest.   Set them in the refrigerator for awhile so they "set up".  Finally, fill each nest with Robin's Eggs.  Fun for the entire family!!
