The Cutest Thing I've Ever Made.
Cherry & Chocolate Mice! I first ran into these at my Dad's side family Christmas. My step-sister made them to go along with her Cheese Ball. She is so creative and I often steal ideas from her. So, I decided I wanted to make them too.
Aren't they adorable? I forgot to take a picture (because I am bad with the whole camera thing) of all the ones I made. There were 24 mice. Now, after being eaten New Year's Weekend... there are only two. Funny thing is, I didn't eat any - because I am not a big fan of cherries.
Anyway... to make them yourself. You need cherries with stems, chocolate for dipping, Hugs or Kisses, almond slices, frosting, and gel. I bought everything already made because I am lazy and didn't want to make my own frosting or gel.
Dip the cherries in the chocolate. You can use Milk or White chocolate.
Attach Hug or Kiss with frosting with two almond slices to the cherry.
Take red gel and dot on the eyes.
They are done! So simple. And so cute!
