Okay Rita, where in the heck did you find these MICE recipes? They are AWESOME!!!! I had so much fun making them and I'm sure DD's class is having just as much fun eating them. The teacher in my DD's class thought they were the cutest things ever! When I showed my daughter last night, she said, "Mice, they're cute." Mind you, she's 2. Anyway, the recipe was super easy to make. Even easier than your other MICE recipe - LOL. I loved the simplicity of this recipe very much. The only thing, I would like to find something for the tail that curls. I got lucky with finding a flesh colored licorice, but it stuck straight out. I guess if push comes to shove next time and the only thing I can find for the tail is a black rope licorice, then I can always pat the pears dry and dip them in chocolate. Ooooh, that sounds really good - I have left over chocolate from the "other" mice so maybe I'll make some tonight for tomorrow's play group! The ears and tail are the butterscotch licorice cut to shape. The eyes are black licorice cut into tiny bits and pushed into the pear. I also made Rita's other Mice recipe to accompany these critters. Today was my DDss end of summer party at daycare. In the pictures that I posted, the three large mice represent the teachers and the little brown mice represent the 16 kids in DD's class. Thanks for such a fun, easy and delicious recipe! If I make the chocolate covered pears tonight, I'll be sure to take a pic and post them here!
This was fun! We used thin red licorice for the tails, slivered almonds for the ears, raisins for the eyes (a little dab of peanut butter helps them stick), and a bit of a marichino cherry for the nose. We actually didn't have a separate head, we just put the features on the narrow end of the pear. I made this with two 4-year-olds and they enjoyed it very much. Thanks for a cute idea!
