      These are very cute! I doubled the recipe to make enough to take to a Halloween party. Also, as it was an adult party, I added a bit of Kahlua to the sour cream before mixing it with the chocolate, just for a bit of zing! I also rolled them in chocolate sprinkles which gave them the look of mangy fur, before rolling them in the crumbs, and used red sprinkles for the eyes for a demonic look! They were a huge hit, and quite tasty!

      Yes! This has all the components of a holiday treat: quick turnaround, minimal mess, and failsafe great results! I substituted chocolate graham crackers for the wafers, and used white ice cream toppers (like sprinkles, but bigger) for the eyes and nose. Crushed the crackers in there wrappers. Also, used leftover ingredients (I made a triple batch - more than I needed) I made a "rat". I will do this one again!
