post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
Hi, I saw some cute little mice that were posted in the gallery...does anyone know what is holding the kiss and the choc. covered cherry together? Dale posted the ones I saw, but I'm new to this site and I don't know how to ask him directly...so Dale if your out there, I need you..
Thanks,
jenny

Check out this link: http://huntsville.about.com/od/cookies/r/micecookies.htm

I think it is the same or very similar to the ones Dale made. If not then go ahead and PM Dale, I am sure he will give you any help you need.

Have fun!

Tonia, Thank you..these look really close to what I saw. I thought the chocolate covered cherries were the ones that were already dipped, but I guess I can cover some like they said.
Thanks again,
Jenny

Hi Jenny,
I just made some of these last week too, and I can tell you that the ones that Dale posted were done the same way as the directions that Tonia posted. The melted chocolate is what holds everything together. Make a lot- everyone loves these little guys!! icon_smile.gif

Your welcome Jenny. I haven't tried these but they sure do look cute.

I don't think I have ever seen already covered cherries with the stems still on them. And like momsandraven pointed out, you need the chocolate to hold the mice together.

Good luck and be sure to post those little cuties!!

I just made some of these this last weekend. They are the cutest little critters!

I found Cordial Cherry filled Hershey's kisses. (Limited Edition) They are delicious and a great compliment to the chocolate dipped cherries.

I can't get over how cute they were!

X-Mice by DALE
16 oz. bag semi-sweet chocolate 1 teaspoon vegetable shortening Oreo double stuff cookies Slivered almonds Red and green piping gel Maraschino cherries with stems Hershey kisses (Do not use real mice in this recipe. They won't hold still to properly set up and the taste is much too gamey.)

Twist the Oreos apart. Save the side with the cream on it. Melt the chocolate with the shortening. heat until melted enough for dipping. Dip the cherries into the melted chocolate and set onto the cookie. this will be the body. Put a kiss on the cherry. this will be the head. Put another kiss on your spouse. If you are not married, grab whomever is close to you. Do not kiss the dog. That's just nasty.

For the ears, take two almond slivers and position them between the kiss and the cherry. Take green piping gel and make holly leaves. Yeah, I know, you are not an artist, but hey, it's $.99 piping gel from the supermarket, just go with it. Take the red gel and pipe out berries for the holly. Use red piping gel for the eyes.

Can anyone tell me if these need to be refridgerated? I was thinking no because most choc. covered cherries aren't but the jar says refridgerate after opening. icon_rolleyes.gif
