This is an instructable for Beck's chocolate-covered cherry mice - easy to make, and will have much more of an effect than those boxes of chocolates at extortion-level prices.
A whole mess of these will run you maybe $15
... Beck is the name of the elderly German woman who showed me this so long ago...
Step 1: Ingredients:
To create the little buggers you will need:
Stemmed maraschino cherries (I actually had to do some looking to find ones with stems)
white decorative frosting (squeeze-tube applicators make it go MUCH faster)
Chocolate of your choice - I went to the local confectionery and scored some of theirs, chocolate chips will do... Cheaper chocolates will not melt as well
Hersey's Kisses or 'kiss'-shaped chocolate (not the fancy stripy kinds)
