On the 5th Day From My Kitchen, I give to you, Chocolate Cherry Mice Candy.
This is just the most fun to make. I found this Chocolate Cherry Mice Candy recipe in the Betty Crocker Halloween Cookbook. To me, it is a perfect recipe to showcase for the holidays. The kids will just love this.
Chocolate Cherry Mice Candy
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 teaspoons shortening
- 24 maraschino cherries with stems, well drained
- 24 milk chocolate kisses
- 48 almond slices
- White & Red decorative icing or gel tubes
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt the chocolate chips and shortening in a small pan over very low heat until smooth. To make each mouse, hold a cherry by the stem and dip into melted chocolate, swirling to help smooth out the coating. Set on parchment paper and press a chocolate kiss opposite the stem (stem acts as the tail of the mouse). Carefully insert 2 almond slices between the cherry and chocolate kiss. Create 2 white icing dots with red icing centers for eyes. Refrigerated until set. Store in an airtight container.
Notes: You can use a toothpick to create the dots for the eyes. You may leave off the eyes if you choose; they’re just as cute. You create your own icing for the eyes by using a plastic bag with a small cut corner to pipe, or a toothpick to create the icing eyes on the mouse.
A decorative box of Chocolate Cherry Mice Candy makes a delightful gift to give to a teacher or coworker and they will be so impressed that you made them. Enjoy.
