Ingredients For chocolate mice
2 canmaraschino cherries with the stems attached (yields about 35 mice)
1 pkgmilk chocolate chips
1 pkgsliced almonds
1 pkghershey's kisses
How To Make chocolate mice
1Unwrap Kisses and set aside. Lay out a large area of wax paper.
2Melt chocolate chips.
3Take cherries by the stem and dip into melted chocolate.
4Lay the cherry down and attach the Kiss to it to form a head. (The chocolate will serve as a glue - If it's not sticky enough, dip the blunt end of the Kiss into the chocolate to make it adhere better.) While the chocolate is still warm, attach almond slices between the head and body. These are the ears!
5Add eyes and a mouth with icing if you wish. Enjoy!
