Chocolate Covered Cherry Mice!

Okay, CUTEST IDEA EVER! "Chocolate Covered Cherry Mice!" Way cool and way easy to make. They're the hit of the party every time! 


DIRECTIONS
-Drain maraschino cherries (with stems attached for the tails). 
-Dip cherries, one at a time, in melted chocolate (can melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or the microwave). 
-Place on waxed paper-lined pan with stem pointing to the side and then stick a Hershey's Kiss on the front of the cherry. Hold them together a few seconds until the chocolate cools enough to stay put when you let go.
-Place two slivered almonds for ears between body and head before the chocolate cools completely (can use flattened raisins if allergic to nuts). 
-Cool in fridge after all are finished.
-Can add dots of frosting or gel for the eyes and nose.

Try them out. Have fun! I've seen some people use Hershey's "HUGS" or "Cookies and Cream" Kisses for the head and then white chocolate for the body, but when I tried using white chocolate chips, it turned out runnier and seemed to create a larger pool of chocolate beneath the mouse before it dried. I selected the best white chocolate mouse for this picture, so the pool underneath isn't as large as some of the others were.

  1. They would be an adults treat in our house as the kids won't go within 10 feet of a maraschino cherry! ◡‿⊙
