I've been making these chocolate covered cherry Christmas mice several years now. They are easy to make and always a big hit at every holiday gathering.
8 oz Melting Chocolate (I used Ghirardelli semi-sweet)
1 medium jar Maraschino Cherries with stems
Mini Chocolate Chips
Red Gel Icing
|three kinds of chocolate yumminess…|
Melt chocolate in microwave or in double boiler.
Dip cherry in melted chocolate and press against the bottom of a Hershey's kiss. The melted hot chocolate will stick to the kiss.
Place on wax paper. While still hot, add two mini chocolate chips on the seam between the kiss and cherry, pressing the chips into the melted chocolate. These are the mice ears.
Add a tiny dab of red gel icing to the tip of the kiss for the mouse nose.

You can trim the "tails". Or not.
Store in an airtight container or in the refrigerator.
