Hello cupcakes
For the chocolate mice I used Hershey Chipits Mini KISSES;
For the white mice I used Hershey Chipits Pure White Chocolate Chips.
The white chocolate chips are smaller & have a bit of a curve at the tip.
So I used some of the smaller cherries for the white mice & I think the curved tip added character to the faces icon_lol.gif
Both from the baking section of my local grocery store.

I am not sure if Hershey does have white chocolate KISSES (I seem to remember seeing some).
They did have mini kisses in holiday colors. I bought several bags, thinking I would make an army of green, white & red mice (to really continue with the holiday theme, or just for another cute idea to add to my Italian themes.) I would have one of each on everyone's dessert plate. Or, I was actually thinking of making small loaf cakes, decorated to look like mouse traps... Ok now I am getting carried away.

ciao for now

Me again,
I showed pictures of my mice & now everyone wants some;
I've made a whole tray to be added to dessert plates on New Year's day,
and I am making little gift boxes.
I positioned 5 little guys on 6inch gold boards (attached with a drop of chocolate so they do not move) and placed them in gold boxes tied with gold & red ribbon.

attached is image of my second batch (the mice are just as cute, but my photography is getting better!)
Thanks for looking.
Happy New Year Everyone !!

Ciao

Hello jescapades

If you place them on something (like the cookie) it is easier to add to them (like the 'wreath' on mine).
I just brought some to a dinner party, where the hostess always uses pink on her dinner table, so I added pink drop flowers (she had pink carnations in her center piece).
For your football theme, you could add a chocolate covered almond; using gel or white chocolate you can add the stitching lines.
Instead of oreos, you can use any other cookie with a touch of green icing for the trurf;or try crackers (the combination of salty & sweet tastes is awesome); or make a bit of chocolate clay using green candy melts. then with a football shaped cookie cutter you can make a base for the mice to sit on. & if you are really a fan, add a stripe (team colors of course) to either the base or the little guys themselves...
what do you think?
ciao for now

I sold close to 100 of these at a craft fair today and the same last weekend!

justducky,

What did you charge per mouse?

Thanks
post #55 of 58
I charge 1.75 per mouse. The point of the craft fairs is to get the word of mouth for the cake side of the business. So I only being mice, snowmen, spoons and cocoa cones.

From two craft fairs I got 5 very large dessert buffet orders, 3 cake orders and 6 cookie platter orders. Not bad for a $10 and $15 entry fee. And these were both slow shows!

At our bakery we sell them for $2.00 each, we use the whole Oreo cookie ( we use a cookie chocolate mold to get the white chocolate onto the cookie and then there is already a pattern on the chocolate). Wilton makes some of the molds, but our are from our local candy supply depot and do not have a brand name.

I've made a version of these before that use white chocolate with chips instead of kisses. They sit on triangles of shortbread as if they were little wedges of cheese. I find that the flavor of Oreos overpowers and takes over, while the buttery crunch of shortbread compliments the white chocolate and cherry nicely and is a little more elegant for a party. I don't bother with the coconut whiskers, and I use silver or gold dragees for the noses, rather than red hots. People cannot get enough of these.
