Cure your watch-party sweet tooth with this dessert recipe for Lady Bird Nests, featuring pretzels, chocolate, torched marshmallows and graham cracker crumbles. It’s sure to be a fan favorite! Created by entertainment and lifestyle expert Lynn Lilly of Craft Box Girls, in partnership with Bernzomatic, a leader in kitchen cooking torches.

Lilly offers these essential tips for working with a kitchen torch:

  • Follow safety instructions provided, tying back long hair
  • When using more intense torches, use safety gear such as gloves and glasses
  • Don’t use around flammable materials or surfaces
  • Use in a well-ventilated room or outdoors

 

Ingredients

  • Mini pretzel rods
  • Milk chocolate morsels
  • Large marshmallows
  • Cupcake liners
  • Glitter cupcake wrappers
  • Graham crackers

Preparation

  • 1 Place cupcake liners in a cupcake tin.
  • 2 Break up the mini pretzel rods and fill the cupcake liners.
  • 3 Melt the chocolate morsels in the microwave until creamy and smooth. Spoon chocolate over the pretzels.
  • 4 Let the chocolate harden or place in the fridge to accelerate hardening.
  • 5 Once the chocolate is hard, remove from cupcake liners and place them back in the cupcake tin.
  • 6 Cut a large marshmallow into fourths. Top each nest with three marshmallow pieces.
  • 7 Use the Bernzomatic TS4000to melt and crisp the marshmallows - you’ll want to torch only for a few seconds so you don't melt the chocolate.
  • 8 Remove the nests from the cupcake tin and place in glitter cupcake wrappers.
  • 9 Top with a dusting of graham cracker crumbles.
