The cutest, delicate mice you ever saw! Everyone remarks about them. I give trays of assorted cookies each year and place them on top. They just make it! It actually is a help when the kids can put on the almonds. I don't remember where I got the recipe, so I gave the best measurements I can recall. It sounds like it could be a Hershey's recipe!? For adults you can strain the cherries, then add rum or almond liquor and soak overnight drain and dry proceed with recipe. Save the rum for drinks.
I make these little treats for my son to take to school. It's a perfect, cute little Easter treat. I serve them in the individual over-sized cupcake papers. You could use plain Rice Krispies and/or omit the chick.....still just as cute. Prep time does not include cooling and setting time.
This is a fun treat for elementary school children to give to their classmates at Christmas time or at a holiday party as a party favor. You can give these to any child. Kids just love it. Adults do too. When I gave them to a K-1 class 2 years ago, the kids tried to stick the "Reindeer Noses" on their own nose. It was so cute!! You can print the poem out using a card printing program. Use the Business Cards format and select the one that has 10 business cards per sheet of paper. Find a Reindeer image to put on them too. Use red and green font making one word red and the next word green like I have done. I don't know how many packets each bag of red hot candies will make. Have your child/children help you make these to save time. They will love doing it. Time is approximate depending on how many you make.
This is a fun and inexpensive gift to give to your childs/childrens teachers and staff members at their school. You can give these to just about anyone. Kids think they are funny! You can print the poem using a card printing program and using the Busines Cards format. Select the one that has 10 business cards per sheet of paper. You can use red and green fonts making one line red and the next green like I did on mine The pic on the right is of the poem only and not the whole packet. For a nice touch see if your card/business printing program has a graphic of a snowman and attatch that too. I have attached mine to give you an idea as to what you can do with yours. Time is approximate depending on how many "Snowman Poop" packets you make. You need to give yourself time to print the poem out as well as assemble the packets. It is well worth the time spent to see the smiles on peoples faces when you give it to them. Yield is approximate as well. If you want you can insert the packet in a Chrismas or Holiday card for your childs/childrens teacher and office staff. Have your child/children help you assemble the packets.
