I have decided this week my inner child is gonna shine. I love Easter for a lot of reasons although I am only going to touch on my love of candy doesn't mean it is the only reason. So this week I bring to you...
Easter Candy Unwrapped.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love my candy and all the fun things you can do with it. So let me share some of the fun things I have found involving candy.
Peeps are my first love of Easter candy. I love them fresh but even more so if they are stale. I even have my own technique of getting them stale fast lol. Here are a few pics of cute things made with Peeps.

Second: Cadbury Creme Eggs
These creme eggs are so addictive. I try every year to stock up on them but somehow always end up eating them as fast as I buy them. So sad they are only in the stores once a year. Let me show you some fun things you can do with these bad boys.

Deviled Cadbury eggs
Third: Kinder Eggs
Now these are a new find for me, I had never heard of them until a few friends started talking about them and I knew I had to find them. Did I find them you ask? Why yes I did and oh my goodness are they good and fun too!!! Kinder also carries bars with different fillings the white milky center is to die for. Anyway these candy eggs come with a surprise in the middle, let me just show you.

Toys from Kinder eggs
This is the coveted Kinder bar I so desperately need in my every day life. lol
Now while I found these little eggs fairly easily at an international food store close to me they will not be available all the time. I even kind of begged the manager to keep them around since I know of a particular friend I could use these as a bribery tool with.
Last but not least the jelly bean:
A jar of jelly beans is a must have
Jelly bean bark
Jelly bean bracelets awwww
Jelly bean topiary, how cool are these?
Ahhhh Peeps and jelly beans in one place
Ok ok I know not a lot of people like these but this has always been one of my favorites of Easter time. As kids and even still when anyone had black jelly beans in their baskets they were given to me. With my birthday so close to Easter I have always been given a bag of just black jelly beans. Sadly this year no one could find them so I have pouted all season. I know there are companies that make them but I'm talking about the cheapo bags you know the ones for like 50 cents lol.
I hope everyone has an awesome day no matter if you celebrate the holiday or not. If you have too much candy sitting around invite me over I'll take care of that for you.
Peace, love and cupcakes
