Easter Candy Milkshake

Happy Good Friday, everyone.  I hope many of you who celebrate Easter are looking forward to a fantastic weekend at church and spent with family.  Mike and I are actually headed to another golf tournament this weekend, and I have to say that I am most excited for the Sunday morning Sunrise Service on the 18th green before the day begins.  The views out into the harbor are beautiful, and it's such a great way to start the day!  

With Easter also comes that magical bunny and all of his treats.  I always loved searching all over my parents' house for eggs, and then unwrapping and eating the candy all day.  I have to say that my love for Easter candy has not dwindled over the years.  Mike and I might have gone a little crazy at the grocery store last weekend and bought a ton of goodies for ourselves.  I thought that it would be fun to take as many of those candies as possible and make them into a delicious milkshake!  Truth be told, this milkshake needs to be eaten with a spoon because of all the delicious candy pieces, but I have to say, I think I got the crazy candy combination just right. 
Here's what we binged on at the grocery store.  The only thing I didn't use in this shake were those Chicks, Ducks, and Bunnies because it kept making the shake way too sweet.  Anyone remember when the SweetTarts used to be giant?! I miss those!
To make my milkshake, I scooped 3 large scoops of vanilla ice cream into my blender, along with 3/4 cup of milk.  Then, I crushed up my favorite candies: Kit Kats (chocolate wafers), Reese's rabbit (peanut butter), and Robin Eggs (malted mill balls).  I poured a whole bunch of each candy into the blender and pureed together the whole thing.  After pouring it into a glass, I made fresh whipped cream to go on top by mixing together a cup of heavy whipping cream, two tablespoons of powdered sugar, and a few drops of pink food coloring with my hand mixer.  I garnished the whole thing with a Peep and a few of the leftover candy crumbs.
Now doesn't that look like the perfect Easter dessert?! How fun would it be to have all the kids in the family bring over their favorite candies to make their own, unique milkshakes?  I bet Cadbury eggs or pastel M&Ms would be delicious!  If you're looking for even more Easter food and decor inspiration, check out my Easter round up and Easter basket ideas!  Have a great weekend!
