Munchable Mice

No haunted house would be complete without scurrying mice. We've caught a few to serve to our guests! - Gooseberry Patch Blog




Munchable Mice
a few changes, original recipe from Gooseberry Patch Halloween Cookbook

6 oz pkg melting chocolate
24 Maraschino Cherries with stems, well drained
24 milk chocolate Hershey Kisses
48 almond slices
Candy Eye Balls (from a cake store)

Melt chocolate in microwave, in 30 second increments (and do a little at a time so it doesn't start to harden to quickly). To make each mouse, hold cherry by the stem and dip into melted chocolate mixture. Set on wax paper; press a chocolate drop onto opposite side of cherry from stem. For ears, insert 2 almond slices between cherry and chocolate drop. Using a toothpick dip in melted chocolate and then place the eye ball on the mice using the melted chocolate as your glue. Cover; keep refrigerated. Makes 2 dozen.

  1. A lady at our church made something similar to these for our fall party last week. Both your and her versions are so cute. It's definitely something I may try to make next year.
