Introduction: Chocolate Mice
This is something my dad taught me when I was young, I hope you all enjoy this tasty treat. Its always a hit at parties.
Step 1: Ingredients and Supplies
Maraschino cherries with the stems.
Bakers chocolate/Fondue chocolate
Something to melt chocolate ( I used a double boil method as pictured above, some may find it easier to use microwavable chocolate.)
Step 2: Construction
Wash your hands.
Unwrap the chocolate kisses.
Dip the cherries in the chocolate and place on cookie sheet.
After each cherry partially dip a chocolate kiss and attach to the cherry. This will be the mouses head so make sure it is opposite of the cherry stem, which will act as the tail.
Now add two small almond slices on top between the cherry and the kiss. These are the ears.
After all mice are made use the extra chocolate left over to add eyes. Use a tooth pick to dip in the chocolate and use that to put two dots on the kisses for the eyes.
Step 3: Presentation and Extra Ideas.
Now that you're done all thats left is to plate and serve!
Other Ideas I would suggest is using a small dab of red icing on the tip of the nose.
Or using all white chocolate and using red icing for the eyes.
I would also suggest buying some chocolate covered sesame seeds to scatter around your platting in little piles.
I hope you all have fun and please share your different Ideas in the comments. I would also love to see pictures of different platting ideas that you all have.
