This week’s Friday Flavor Feature is all about our highly addictive, insanely delicious Birthday Cake Pretzel Bites! Because it is also Easter weekend, we’ve included a fun recipe for chocolate “nests” with birthday cake bite “easter eggs”.
First, a little bit more about our pretzel bites. New to the game, these bite sized versions of our classic Fatty Sundays pretzels are perfect for snacking and sharing. Our pretzel bites are all made using our broken pretzel rods. We try to reduce pretzel waste by making use of our broken pieces- it’s a win-win, really! While our standard pretzel rods come in 15+ flavors, our bites only come in three flavors and birthday cake is certainly the most popular! The combination of creamy white chocolate, vanilla cookie crumbles and rainbow sprinkles makes for an irresistible birthday cake batter flavor. The birthday cake flavor is super trendy right now, and we don’t anticipate it going anywhere over the next few years! Plus, the bite size aspect of these sweet and salty treats really make this product addictive- don’t say we didn’t warn you!
Okay, now to the recipe…
-2 cups thin pretzel sticks (we used gluten-free!) broken into pieces
– 1 cup milk chocolate chips
-1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
-1 medium bag of Fatty Sundays Birthday Cake Pretzel Bites
- Melt the milk chocolate chips and shortening in microwave oven.
- Pour melted mixture over the pretzel sticks and mix to completely coat all pretzels.
- Shape mixture into 10 “nests” and place on parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Top each nest with 3-4 Fatty Sundays Birthday Cake Pretzel Bites.
These Easter Egg Nests are so quick and easy to make. They really only take a few minutes! Get ready to impress your Easter holiday guests…
