Christmas Mice Candy [2]

Christmas Mice Candy

These are absolutely adorable and fun to make with children or grandchildren. They also add a large dose of cuteness to a holiday cookie platter. When I saw these in the December 2010 Midwest Living magazine, I knew I had to make these even if only for the cuteness factor. Lo and behold, they are as delicious as they are cute!!

1 12 0z. pkg. of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 10 jar of maraschino cherries with stems, drained and patted dry
36 milk chocolate Kisses with stripes
sliced almonds

1. Place chocolate chips in small microwaveable bowl. Microwave on 100% power about 1 minute or until melted, stirring twice.
2. For each mouse, hold a cherry by the stem and dip in melted chocolate to cover. Place coated cherry on a large cookie sheet covered with waxed paper or parchment paper. Immediately press the bottom of a chocolate Kiss up against the cherry to form the head. Insert two almond slices between the head and body to form the ears.
3. Use a toothpick dipped in the melted chocolate to make eyes and to dot the end of the nose.
4. Place in the refrigerator to chill for 15 minutes so the chocolate hardens.
5. Peel mice from the cookie sheet or use a small flat metal spatula or table knife to remove mice from the cookie sheet.
6. Place in airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
Makes 36 mice
