Tiny Chocolate Mice

My aunt Claudia recently went to a party celebrating my cousin David's engagement - congratulations, David! These teeny mice were all over the cheese and fruit tray, and as soon as I saw this photo from Claudia, I instantly started trying to figure out how they were made. They are entirely too cute.

Per Claudia:

  1. Dry off maraschino cherries.
  2. Dip them entirely into melted chocolate chips.
  3. "Glue" a Hershey kiss on the front with melted chocolate, making sure to keep the stem/tail in the correct position.
  4. Add slivered almonds to make ears.
  5. Mix powdered sugar with water and affix with toothpicks to make the eyes.
  6. Allow to dry on parchment paper in the fridge until ready to go.
Now, who wants to be the first hostess in Jackson to have these precious little boogers at her party?
