A collection of all the stuff I am bombarded with every day on Facebook and email and Twitter and so forth.
Almost all of it is stuff that was sent to me and I did not request. I don't know where most of it came from other than the person that dropped it on me.

1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
pastel polka-dot sprinkles
2-3 packages of bunny Peeps
Melt the white chocolate chips in a medium glass bowl. To ensure that your chocolate is melted without becoming singed, pop the bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds, then remove it and stir. Return to the microwave for 30 seconds, then remove it and stir again. Continue doing this until the chocolate is smooth and melted, but not warm to the touch.
Dip the bottom half of the Peeps into the melted white chocolate, covering the entire bottom half of their body, up to their little necks. Place the dipped Peeps onto a piece of parchment and allow the chocolate to cool and harden completely.
Melt the dark chocolate chips in a medium glass bowl. Dip the Peeps diagonally on the left side, then on the right side of their bellies. Return to parchment and allow to cool and harden.
Spoon some of the remaining chocolate into a ziptop bag. Cut a very small corner from the bag and pipe a small amount of chocolate on the back of a polka-dot sprinkle. Gently press sprinkle into place as a “button.” Pipe a bowtie just above the sprinkle button. Return to the parchment and allow to cool completely before serving.
