Hop into the Season with Me and My Robins Eggs Malted Milkshake

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.)

Hop into the Season with Me and My Robins Eggs Malted Milkshake

Makes about 2 milkshakes give or take your glass size.


  • 1/2 cup robin eggs malt candies, plus some for topping
  • 2 cup vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 – 1 cup milk
  • whipping cream for top, cuz whats a milkshake without a mountain of whipped cream


Place robins eggs candies, ice cream, and milk in a blender. Blitz, pulse and blend until creamy (but try not to demolish every robin egg – or throw a few in towards the end).

Place a few robins eggs in a zip lock bag and beat with a rolling pin once or twice.

Pour milkshake into an awesome glass, top with a mountain of whipped cream, and sprinkle some robin egg bits on top. Pop in an awesome swirly straw (or bendy if that is your preference) and enjoy!

From Me and the Easter candy overload at the big box store.


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).

    Love your background – it only makes that milkshake look better! I keep seeing people make “malted” things…I think I should jump on the bandwagon and get some malted milk powder stuff. Sounds too tasty to ignore. ^_^

    This is such a great idea! I feel like every year I have tons and tons of leftover easter candy with nothing to do with it (except eat it!) Such a delicious way to use the candy!
