How To Make chocolate mice

  • 1
    Unwrap Kisses and set aside. Lay out a large area of wax paper.
  • 2
    Melt chocolate chips.
  • 3
    Take cherries by the stem and dip into melted chocolate.
  • 4
    Lay 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!
