Your mice are adorable and the sprinkles are the perfect touch!!! Mice can't walk two steps without "sprinkling"

I am glad everyone is finding Larry as amusing as I did.  the mice where a huge hit in class, everyone loved the mouse sprinkles, and now they want to make them also. 

No one ate Larry, they just couldn't do it.

That has to be the most adorable thing ever! Poor Larry. I'd think I would eat him just to put him out of his misery...

The tails are just the stems of the cherries that make up the body.  I used a chop stick and dipped it in the melted chocolate to dot on the eyes.   

I am afraid to give Sad Larry kisses he might get bitten by accident Wink

Once I figured it out no.  My method is dip the cherry hold on the kiss till it stays, dip the next cherry and hold on the kiss.  Then go back to the first mouse and add the ears.  Otherwise you have to sit there and really hold them forever, or um, get a Larry.

What kind of chocolate did you use to dip the cherries? My mom and I are planning a Christmas baking day and I think I might have to make some.. they are just so adorable.

I used almond bark in a double boiler.

Cute!
I used melted chocolate chips, and they work just fine, but I think I like pink eyes a little more than chocolate eyes: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69486.0
