I am in full-on Easter mode right now.

I wasn’t. Then this past weekend the Army post we live on had their Easter event and I mainly showed up because they promised an ice skating rink (and lied!) but after holding ALL THE CUTE BUNNIES at the petting zoo, I’m pretty excited to have the Easter Bunny visit us.

Plus, can we all agree that Easter has the best holiday candy? Cadbury eggs, Cadbury mini eggs, Cadbury white mini eggs…

Omg.

Anyway, this is the treat I was planning on sharing on Monday someone destroyed the bag of pretzels and the eggs. Better late than never though, right? I love these so much. They are basically white chocolate-covered pretzels with a Peeps chick on top – what’s not to love?
