You can also add on a red hot candy to the end of the kiss for a nose and you can change out the ears using cereal, peanuts, etc…

    I am old school and like to Print my Recipe I was able to Print the Recipe But I would like to Print the Photo
    is there anyway to do this?

    1. I think you are referring to the milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips? No milk.

  2. I like to make these cuties for my Christmas cookie boxes. So easy to make and so far no one has complained about the mice in the cookies.

  3. I think this is inventive, fun & charming! For adults you can add a cordial to the melted chocolate! Fir children you can add extract or syrup. A visit to Michael’s or Joanne’s- for edible facial expressions, wreaths etc might make it easier for the less crafty. Maybe even dust with snow * frozen marshmallows grated! I think this is grand!
