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!
This sounds great. My kids loved them.
Absolutely love this recipe! Those mice were so darn cute and easy to make, not to mention that they were luscious! I used oreo for dark mice and dried coconut flakes for white mice. They were sweet but not too sweet! Will definitely make again! Thanks so much for this great idea!
I loved these! So easy to make and so very tasty!
How totally cute!! These are pretty easy to make (no baking!) and turn out so adorable. They aren't to-die-for delicious, but they are good and I'm going to put a couple on every Christmas cookie tray I make this year. For the chocolate wafers, I used chocolate Teddy Grahams.
I made these exactly as written, except for the eyes, for which I used red balls (found in the Christmas sprinkles variety pack.) We took them to a Halloween party last night, and got rave reviews, both for appearance and flavor. Everyone took pictures! I've already had requests to make them for my son's birthday party, which is actually on Halloween. (This wasn't a party for kids, by the way, and my son will be 27!) Thanks for the hit recipe!
I made both brown and white mice using this recipe. I also subbed in a little uncooked oats into the the inner chocolate cracker bits, so they now have "fleas". The white mice I used mini marshmallows for ears and rolled in coconut so they look a bit mangy. Amazing recipe!! Thanks!
Yummy, and great fun!! Even managed to scare somebody with one, hee hee!
Very tasty. I added vanilla flavor and rum flavor to different batches. Also try rolling in coconut.
