Robins Eggs candies are a well loved Easter basket treat. When the candies are blended into a milkshake, pure dessert magic happens!
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 robins eggs malted milkshake!
For anyone who may not know the love of the Robins Egg Candies, they are small, pastel speckled malted milk candies with a thin chocolate coating.
Robins Eggs Candies Malted MilkshakeMakes about 2 milkshakes give or take your glass size.Print Pin Rate
- ½ cup robin eggs malt candies - plus some for topping
- 2 cup vanilla ice cream
- ½ – 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!

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).

I'm not a big fan of the malted eggs. But I'm 100% trying this with Cadburry mini-eggs!!!! What an inspired idea!

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. ^_^

Yes please! I love anything with malt...especially milk shakes! This looks great -- love the Easter-inspired candies.
Kita this is so cute! I love the old fashioned glass that you used... and the rainbow backdrop.

I love those robins eggs! Especially the blue ones, turns your mouth blue! Delicious idea!
This is a WAY fun idea. Loving the rainbow backdrop. 🙂
Aww so cute and looks insanely delicious!!
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!
Yum....this gives me another reason to stalk the Easter candy section at the store. 😉
I used to love Robin's Eggs! Great way to use them up while creating something new. Also, love the background in your pics 😉
I adore those candies, too...but I don't buy them or I'll eat them all! I would love your milkshake...mmmmm, mmmmmm good!
Lindsey @ Gingerbread Bagels says
This has to be the most perfect looking milkshake ever. It looks sooo good and I want one right now. 🙂
Not only does it look delicious but it just looks like such a fun thing to drink. Beautiful photos!
Yum! The only thing that makes candy better is ice cream!

I probably have every single flippin' kind of Easter egg candy EXCEPT those malted milk ones, and I LOVE malted milk shakes. This looks so so good. Now I have to go find those candies.
