I live within a two-hour drive of Hershey, PA. This means I am inundated with ads for “Chocolate-Covered February.” So much so that one year, my husband and I drove to the Chocolate Spa only to learn its cocoa facials and buttercream manipedis are booked months in advance.
So if you’re looking to a get a chocolate fix this February and you can’t get in the door for a Whipped Cocoa Bath or Chocolate Sugar Scrub, might I suggest you indulge in one of the books, films, shows, or comics below.

Some of the best bloggers from around the web made recipes inspired by my new book Sprinkles!: Recipes and Ideas for Rainbowlicious Desserts. One of my favorite sprinkles inspired quotes came from We are not Martha who said, "sprinkles are one of the happiest things in all the world. They’re on the same level as glitter… except they’re edible. So, they automatically win. "
Thanks for participating everyone! It was a ton of fun and I got to meet some tremendous blogger/bakers.
