Description

These adorable little mice will be the talk of the party. Make sure to bring 2 for each person, one to eat and one they will want to take home!

Ingredients

  • 1 Jar Cherries With Stems On
  • 1 Package Chocolate Bark
  • 20 Hershey Kisses
  • Almond Slices
  • Gel Tubes Of Black And Red
  • 20 Oreo Cookies (white Chocolate Covered, Or An Opened Cookie)

Preparation

Melt chocolate bark until creamy.

Dip cherry into chocolate while holding the stem. (completely cover cherry, but not stem)

Place cherry on its side on top of the cookie (the stem of the cherry is the mice tail).

Press a Hershey kiss to the opposite side of the cherry (mice head).

Place two almond slices in between the cherry and the kiss (ears). I use the gel tubes of decorating frosting to make a nose (black) and two eyes (red).

I made these for Christmas last year and they were such a hit! I can’t wait to make them again.

I made these this year, they turned out so cute. They were a big hit at work and with my family. I think I have a new holiday tradition!

Just made these this morning with my two oldest (7 & 9 years old) They had such a fun time – and just loved their army of mice. They started telling stories – the fat one they called Gus, the one facing the all the rest became the leader, the smallest was the runt. They kids loved this holiday activity. Thank you so much for sharing!

My three oldest daughters and I made this recipe last night and it was so much fun!

We did use gingersnaps rather than oreo’s though, just because we couldn’t break them apart without messing up the cream.

They are so cute (but really kind of gave me the heebie-jeebies when they were all lined up on the plate together! Kind of like the scene from Ratatouille)

I’ve made these for years and they’re always a hit at holiday parties! I never thought to rest them on cookies, though. Brilliant idea!

I made these back at Christmas from your recipe and they were a hit! I also used red Oreo’s that were available during the holidays.

The grandchildren had so much fun making these. The adults asked them how they made them and even actually ate them!!! Thanks so much for this idea.
