  1. These look amazing! What a really unique and creative idea to use pretzels in these. They would make a lovely Easter basket addition.

  2. These are so adorable and a perfect little activity to do with Easter coming up! I love how you added pretzels to make them look like little sticks in the nest (SO CUTE!). xo – Kam

  3. These look yummy! Ingenious, as well. Good spring time treats. I’d probably “stuff” them with other things aside from jelly beans too. So many possibilities.

  4. These look so great for the season. I can’t wait to try the Rice Krispies Bird Nest Treats special recipe out. I only hope I will be able do as good as you did in the heartwarming photos.

    These are so cute. We love Rice Krispy treats at our house. I will have to give these a try. Thank you so much for sharing

  6. These came out so cute! I’d probably change the jellybeans out for a different candy for my family though.

  7. This is so cool! The best part – it doesn’t have to look absolutely perfect! Birds nests are always a bit chaotic!
