This is one of the cutest spooky treat ideas that I've seen. My wonderful friend Melissa handed me this recipe for her Chocolate Cherry Mice Treats and it's perfect for a Halloween party or a little snack-a-roo.
Maraschino cherries with stem
semi-sweet chocolate chips
icing for eyes ( I usually just get a red or orange gel tube)
1. Drain the cherries and pat them dry with paper towels. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper.
2. Place the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and heat them until smooth, working in 15-second intervals, stirring between each.
3. Holding a cherry by its stem, dip it into the chocolate and swirl it around to completely cover the fruit. Set it on its side on the waxed paper and immediately press a Hershey's Kiss onto the cherry for the head. For the ears, gently wedge two almond slices between the Kiss and the cherry.
4. Using icing, decorate eyes. Can do a pink tip for a nose, just depends what you like.
Now, I'd better get back to watching "The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!" Happy Halloween. :)
