It’s normally not until after the holiday has passed before I look around my kitchen and realize that I have tons of themed candies that I didn’t use for the holiday at hand (maybe that’s because I don’t get pre-Valentine’s Day chocolate and the Easter bunny doesn’t show his cute little tail around here until Easter). I’m a squirrel so I’ll hold onto that darned candy as long as I can thinking that I will use it for the next go around – but we all know that’s not true. Come on, those peppermint kisses will never last until next Christmas (except for that chocolate bunny in the back of my fridge – sorry dude, you just got lost).
But for some reason I’m into the bunny season ahead of time (well, enough ahead that I have some special treats for my readers this week. The other day some friends and I were tweeting about how deflating the scale has been for morale lately and it inspired me to make this little number. 😉 Cuz nothing can crush morale and widen our hips like a milkshake!
(For anyone who may not know the love of the robin egg candies, they are small pastel speckled malted milk candies with a thin chocolate coating.)
If you are feeling inspired, use robins eggs of only one color so that your milkshake turns a pretty shade of pink, blue or yellow instead of this off greenish color that I ended up with (I was too excited to sort colors).
