Mice In The Kitchen!

Hey everyone! I shared these cute little candy mice last Halloween but wanted to repost them in case someone hasn't seen them. They are simply melted chocolate chips, a maraschino cherry, Hershey Kiss and almond slivers. I used a dab of black food coloring gel for the eyes.
I have to laugh at the difference between my sons, I had a cupcake on each plate...
The oldest sat down and moved the cupcake off to the side till after dinner.
The youngest sat down and immediately popped the mouse into his mouth, took a couple bites then 
(with a mouth full) asked "it's ok to eat it right???"

I've seen directions for these many places on the internet:
1. Melt chocolate chips.
2. Dip the cherry and place on wax paper.
3. Attach the kiss. Hold it in place for a few seconds till it "sets". 
4. Add the almonds and let it dry.
5. Add the eyes with a toothpick. (could use a little melted white chocolate for eyes too)
Folks usually make them at Christmas, but I think they're great for Halloween too!
Have a happy day:@)

  6. Those are so cute! They sound very easy to make also. I made ones out of cheesecake and had them all over the table at Christmas last year. That is funny how your two sons are different. Boys!
