what you need
  • 1 package chocolate cookies with white creme filling
  • 1 jar maraschino cherries with stems
  • 1 package almond slices (not slivers)
  • 1 bag chocolate kisses
  • 1 box baking chocolate
  • 1 tube red decorating gel
  • 1 tube green decorating gel
make it
Half 12 cookies and lay out on a cookie sheet frosting side up. Drain the cherries and pour them into a bowl. Cut the almond slices in half. (ears) Unwrap 2 dozen kisses and put in a bowl.

Melt the chocolate according to the package directions. Dip one cherry into the chocolate and place on its side on to the cookie with the stem hanging off the cookie (mouse tail).
Place the kiss on the cookie on its side with the bottom pressed up against the bottom of the cherry. (Mouse head) Hold for a couple seconds to dry.

Place two halved almond slices on top of each side between the kiss and the cherry (ears). Use the red gel to make a nose on the tip of the kiss and two eyes. Use the red and green gel to make a holly leaf with berries on the creme next to the mouse.
These Christmas mice cookies are very easy and are so adorable. They look just like little mice! They taste good too.

Fun project to do with kids. I make them every year and still get oooohss and aaaahhhhss. Everyone asks me how to make them so they can wow everyone they know.
