Say hello to your new Easter tradition

Tomorrow’s Easter and while your kids are hippity hoppity hyper AF in anticipation of their incoming candy bounty, you’re probably just wishing you had a soundproof chamber to hide in and ride out their inevitable sugar crash. Luckily, we have the perfect refreshment for the occasion: yummy chocolate shots straight from a chocolate bunny.

Yes, you read that right. Go big or go home, parents.

A genius on Facebook by the name of Missy Mwac shared this brilliant idea for helping us hobble through the horrors of Easter Sunday. A day no parent should have to survive without the help of alcohol. The good news is, you should have several appropriate liquor receptacles handy once the baskets have been ravaged.

Mwac writes, “It’s that time of year again-the time of year where you buy hollow chocolate bunnies and turn them into shot glasses.”

As an enthusiastic fan of both sweet liqueur and candy, I’m mildly annoyed I didn’t come up with this on my own, but I’ll try to just be happy it exists at all. Here’s the recipe that Mwac so generously shared:

1 shot Godiva Dark Chocolate Liqueur

1 shot Salted Caramel Vodka A splash of half and half

All poured into a hollow, chocolate bunny broken in half, of course.

Is your mouth watering yet? It sounds like a complete dream. Dessert inside of a dessert that will also mellow you out a little bit as your candy-coated kids literally climb the freaking walls.

Also, don’t limit yourself here — as commenters on Mwac’s post pointed out, you could fill these baby bunnies with a number of different liquors. Kahlúa, Baileys, and vanilla vodka were all thrown out as possible bunny shot ingredients. Count. Us. In. One brilliant woman even suggested using the ears as a shot glass too. Waste not, want not and whatever.

Sure, Easter is more of a day for kids, but why not let the adults have a little something too? After all, those egg hunts, visits for photos with the bunny, and baskets brimming with treats wouldn’t be possible without our exhaustive efforts.

As Mwac says, “Is it wrong to toast to a risen Savior with a chocolate bunny shot? If it is, I don’t want to be right.”

Neither do we. Bottoms up, parents!
