This is going to be a fun post. I never imagined a future blog being about anything but biblical insights, but I’m learning that even the little pleasures in life are blessings from God. And I think we could all use a little joy in our lives right now.

As a preface, I’m not much of a cook. In fact, my husband does most of the cooking because he’s good at it at and he enjoys it. Think what you would like of my stay-at-home-mom skills, but it works for us.

However, I love making fun hot drinks. Bonus points if it involves coffee (the empty latte cup sitting beside me can attest to that). I don’t quite understand people who don’t enjoy coffee, but I think everyone can agree on the merits of one delicacy: chocolate.

I hope some Easter chocolate has found its way into your home by now. (Can we all just take a moment and thank the Lord for Walmart grocery pickup?) This week, some Cadbury Creme Eggs and Cotton Candy Peeps miraculously found their way into our grocery order. With some extra time on my hands yesterday, I got a little creative. The result was too good not to share.

Easter Hot Chocolate

Ingredients:

1 cup of milk – I used vanilla unsweetened almond milk, but you can use whatever milk you prefer

One Cadbury Creme Egg

Whipped cream

One Peeps Marshmallow Chick

Instructions:

  1. Either on the stovetop or in the microwave, warm milk until it is bubbling.
  2. Place Cadbury Creme Egg in a mug and pour half of the warm milk over the egg. Use a spoon to stir until the egg has melted.
  3. Stir the remaining milk into the mug.
  4. Top with a small amount of whipped cream.
  5. Place Peep on top

I hope you enjoy this fun treat as much as we did! I would love to hear what you think! You can connect with me on Instagram here:
