Drink Your Easter Basket With These 5 Candy Cocktails

Cheers! It’s Thirst-Day!

This Snickers-inspired martini from No Spoon Necessary is even better than the candy bar.

The only thing better than eating your way though an Easter basket is drinking your way through one, right? From chocolates to jelly beans to marshmallow Peeps, the contents of your Easter basket are just begging to be blended up with some mixers and maybe a shot of alcohol (or two) and consumed by an adult.

So, if you’re the type who likes to pick through a child’s Easter basket (no judgement), we asked our Culinary Content Network of food bloggers what their favorite way to drink candy is. These five recipes are sweet, delicious, and oh-so joyful for spring.
