1 bag (6 or 7 oz.) thin pretzel sticks - broken into short pieces
Preparation - Melt the peanut butter and chocolate chips in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Stir in the pretzel sticks. Drop the mixture by heaping tablespoons full onto a waxed paper covered cookie sheet. Use the bottom of a tablespoon to make an indentation in the center of each one. Chill until set. After the nests are set, store in a single layer in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator until ready to fill. Fill with tiny jelly eggs or other small candies.
