Oh. it's just candy mices.
KittyMaus won't be allowed to nibble these mousies...
Still hot from the pot!
Dark chocolate kisses for the head. Sliced almonds for the ears. Holding it by the stem, dip a maraschino cherry into melted chocolate, & you have the body. It's all held together by that melted chocolate.
And they won't be stirring, on the night before Christmas. They'll have vanished entirely.
(HT: an old friend who sent me one of these years ago... and helped me discover that plenty of dark chocolate makes the sickeningly-sweet cherries more palatable. The sincerest form of flattery in the kitchen is theft of recipe. **Kisses**)
