  • Drain cherries. Let set on paper towels. Combine syrup, sugar, butter & salt. Knead until smooth. Chill if too soft. Place 3/4 tsp. mixture around cherry, leave stem exposed. Place on a tray lined with waxed paper. Chill until firm.
  • Meanwhile, unwrap chocolate candies & set aside. Melt dipping chocolate (DO NOT MELT CANDIES). Dip cherries completely coating with melted chocolate. Place flat side of kiss-type candy against end of cherry without stem. Leave stem exposed to form "tail".
  • Place 2 slivered almonds between candy & cherry to form "ears". Lay on side with pointed end of candy forming "nose". Using decorating gel, make 2 dots for eyes, and one on tip of nose.
  • Return to wax covered tray. Continue with other cherries and candies. Cover & chill until firm. Store in a cool place 1-2 weeks. Makes 60 "MICE".


This is a delightful presentation for chocolate covered cherries. Children of ALL AGES enjoy them.
