And these are as easy to make as can be. Five ingredients, a little time, and Voila, MICE, edible ones.
1 jar Maraschino Cherries, with stems if possible (I couldn't find any and the licorice idea for tails didn't work)
Chocolate Chips for melting.
Red frosting in a tube
Drain a jar of Maraschino Cherries, reserving the juice if you like. Rinse, then pat them dry on some paper towels.
Melt chocolate, and let sit for a couple of minutes, while you're unwrapping the Hershey Kisses.
Dip a cherry into the chocolate, then place it against the base of a Hershey kiss, hold it there for just a second
so that it adheres, then put two slices of the almonds in between the chocolate covered cherry and the Hershey Kiss.
Make eyes with the red frosting tube and set aside to cool. (I forgot to take a good picture of my finished plate of mice, grrrrrr). Repeat til all the mice are assembled and set aside to solidify. Serve and enjoy.
And as you can see I also made some 'Crunchy' Eyeballs as well. Believe it or not, they were a hit with the grown ups there as well.
Again, something so easy to make and fun for the kid in all of us.
White chocolate chips, melted
blue or green M & M's or

It's fun watching grownups playing with their food.
