These are so cute on a cookie platter or in a tin of homemade candies!
Melt the chopped paraffin in the top of a double boiler over low heat. When the wax has completely melted, add chocolate chips. Stir until melted. Turn off heat. Dip the cherry (which has been drained and dried off with paper towels) into the melted chocolate and place onto Silpat or parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Immediately press the kiss onto the cherry, holding in place for several seconds. Dip the pointed tips of the almonds into the chocolate and place between the cherry and kiss until the chocolate sets up, several seconds. Using a toothpick or a skewer, dot chocolate onto the tip of the kiss to form the nose. Do the same for the eyes. You can stop with one or continue on to form a mouse army.
The melted chocolate covers approximately 75 mice. If you want to stop, the chocolate can be stored in the fridge and used again by slowly reheating it in the double boiler.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
