12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GOODIES: Munchable Mice

Day 2 of 12 Days of Christmas Goodies

The Night Before Christmas
by Clement C. Moore

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads......

I made these Munchable Mice for Halloween and thought they would also be so cute for Christmas,
it reminds me so much of the The Night Before Christmas poem.

Munchable Mice
with 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.

  5. There just as cute now as they were at Halloween!

    Thank you for linking up for the Holly Bloggy Christmas Recipe Party. I'm featuring some of the recipes from the party on my blog later this week, and I've chosen your recipe to feature. I know I featured them at Halloween, but they're just too cute not to feature again!
