    Sayster's Note:

    My mom taught my little brother and me how to make these little mice. They are so fun! I'm guessing about the quantities and yield.

      Great recipe! I made these last year and gave them to my students and they loved them! I placed each mouse on half of a double stuffed oreo while assembling so he looks like he's on snow. Then i placed each one in a white muffin paper, wrapped in seran and tied the top with ribbon. These are really cute and if you do them in assembly style they go fairly quickly. Thanks for sharing!

      These little babies are a huge hit! I strain and dry the cherries than I put the cherries and the kisses (cherry flavored kisses) in the fridge til cold. I dip the cold cherries in the chocolate and put the cold kisses on they firm up very quickly. The ears are the crowning glory. Thanks for a great recipe people start asking me for them in October!

      This receipe was great!! I used chocolate covered cherries for the body. I used icing to pipe on the tails. I used candy stars for the eyes. They were soooo easy for my daughter and I to make. They were also very cute, a hit at the family Christmas party.
