i make these little guys usually for christmas. i worked at a little tea house and bakery and we always made white mice (with WHITE chocolate) as part of our nut cracker tea. i thought these might be cute in regular chocolate as part of a halloween spread!

you will need:

- a jar of maraschino cherries WITH STEMS!!
- melting chocolate (either white or regular)
- bag of Hershey's kisses (any variety you like)
- small packet of almond slivers
- mini chocolate chips
- wax paper
- glass bowl big enough to dunk the mice
- spoon
- strainer
- microwave!

sooo.....start by rinsing all the cherries in the strainer and laying them on paper towel to dry, you can pat them a bit but be gentle, you need them intact. you can eat all the ones that have lost their stems Smiley

microwave some of the melting chocolate according to the directions.

unwrap some hershey's kisses and use a dollop of the melting chocolate to glue a kiss to the front of each cherry opposite the stem/tail. (i like the curl in my stems to go up so i make sure they sit like that.) set them on wax paper to dry. they should look like this:


once their stuck on good and cooled pick them up by the stems and dip them in the bowl of melted chocolate! a spoon might help ya out here.


set them back on the wax paper, tail facing up!

while their still wet put too little mini-chocolate chip eyes in their little faces and add the almond sliver ears!

let them dry, arrange them on a plate and TA DA!


they should be eaten by the tail--->
