Festive Holiday Mice
Comment on this recipe
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate pieces
1 jar (20 ounces) maraschino cherries with stems, drained and patted dry
36 milk chocolate Hershey Kisses with stripes
72 almond slices
Place chocolate in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high 1 minute or until melted, stirring twice.
To assemble mice, hold each cherry by stem and dip in melted chocolate to coat. Place coated cherries on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Immediately press the flat bottom of an unwrapped chocolate Kiss up against the cherry to form the head. Insert two almond slices between head and body to form ears.
Place remaining melted chocolate in a re-sealable plastic bag, seal, snip off a very tiny piece of a
corner and pipe on eyes and nose onto the mice. Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator; chill about 15 minutes
or until chocolate is set.
Place mice in airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3-5 days. Makes 36 mice.
