Christmas Eve Mice
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + chilling
I make these EVERY year! Here's my tip: I assemble and let the "body" dry before adding the almond sliced ears,.. dip the slices in melted chocolate and hold in place for a couple of seconds. I also found Chocolate BARK works dries much faster than melting chocolate, if you can't find it in the stores you can get it at Amazon :)
I always include the Christmas Eve Mice in my Christmas Cookie Boxes. I do make one change for those who have nut allergies. I use a small piece of a caramel and shape into the ears. It is so easy and works so well. I get rave reviews from kids and adults alike.
I found these little mice in one of your cookbooks years ago and they've been a hit every year since. Kids especially love the but adults also think they're too cute to eat. It's become a Christmas tradition - Christmas Eve mice!
sorry, I took so long to rate. I made the mice for Christmas for my grandchildren. They are so cute I promise they will bring a smile to everyone's face. The were so cute no one wanted to eat them.
everybody loves these little mice. it's easier to use a white chocolate oreo
They were so easy to make, I melted the chocolate and crisco in a glass bowl over a pot of boiling water(double boiler ). And keep the water simmering so the chocolate keep warm while we put the mice together . Can't wait to bring them to the party.
These are absolutely adorable!!! Definately making these this year. Thank you for sharing
These are great, take some time. I used chow mein noodles for tails as I had cherries without stems and they still look really cute:-) I pushed them lightly into the frosting so they would hold. One thing I found out is the "tail" should be level with the frosting or the cherry rolls to the side and then it is a mess. Also, I got white frosting and used that to frost the halves with no frosting so as to use the whole cookie. It worked out great, no waste that way.
Learned to make these in a "Wilton" class years ago. Forgot all about it. I will make these again.
We had fun making them and the best part was eating them the kids had fun.
