Munchable Mice

Photo: Becky Luigart-Stayner
Yield Serves 6
No haunted house would be complete without scurrying mice. We've caught a few to serve our guests.


  • 1 (6-oz.) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons shortening
  • 24 maraschino cherries with stems, well drained
  • 24 milk chocolate drops
  • 48 almond slices
  • Garnish: white and red icing

How to Make It

  1. Melt chocolate chips and shortening in a double boiler over low heat; stir until smooth. To make each mouse, hold a cherry by the stem and dip into melted chocolate mixture. Set on wax paper; press a chocolate drop onto opposite side of cherry from stem. For ears, insert 2 almond slices between cherry and chocolate drop. If desired, pipe 2 white icing dots with red icing centers for eyes. Cover; keep refrigerated. Makes 2 dozen.
