I used a small bowl full of pretzels, with the equivalent in varied chocolate, producing 15 nests. You are allowed to microwave the chocolate, but I prefer the double-boiler method.

Fill a medium sized saucepan with an inch of water, and bring to a slow, quiet boil. Place a stainless-steel bowl on top, adding a small amount of the chocolate. Stirring occasionally, wait until completely melted. Pour a handful of broken pretzels into the mix and stir lightly, covering the pieces. Drop the clump into a muffin cup, repeat and refrigerate. 

Decorate with mini eggs, foil eggs, peeps, sprinkles or caramel drizzle! Then scarf them down while you cram for exams.
