Chocolate Cherry Mice
Ingredients you will need:

- Maraschino cherries

How To Make Chocolate Mice
- Start out by draining and patting dry your cherries.
- Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave and stir until smooth.
- Dip the cherries in the melted chocolate and then place on wax paper.
4. Press on a Hershey Kiss for the head then wedge in the almond halves for the ears.
5. Add on white icing for the eyes and black icing for the pupils.
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…
We love these by themselves, but you can also place them on the tops of cookies or cupcakes. They make such a fun addition to any of your Holiday treats and look so cute on Christmas cookie trays.
