Recipe by Halcyon Eve

Chocolate mice from Simple & Delicious December 2008. My mom makes peanut butter mice cookies; these would go very well I think. They are just chocolate--not chocolate-cherry. Prep time includes microwaving time, but not chilling time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 23 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs, divided (about 40 wafers)
  • 13 cup sour cream
  • 36 red nonpareils
  • 14 cup sliced almonds
  • 18 pieces black licorice strings (2 inches long each)


  1. Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in microwave until almost completely melted, stopping to stir occasionally. Stir until smooth.
  2. Stir in 1 cup wafer crumbs and the sour cream.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until cooled enough to handle easily.
  4. To make each mouse, roll about 1 tablespoon chocolate mixture into a ball, tapered at one end to make a teardrop shape.
  5. Gently roll in remaining wafer crumbs to coat.
  6. Decorate with nonpareils for eyes, almond slices for ears, and licorice for the tail.
