I haven't even tried one of them yet, I made them more for my neighbors and my parents. Also doing a "test run" before I make them for a couple of parties I'm going to. They are pretty easy to make, only problem is finding cherries with stems.
Here are the directions.
Merry Christmas Mice:
24 double-stuffed Oreos
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons shortening24 red maraschino cherries with stems, well
24 chocolate kisses
48 sliced almonds
1 small tube green decorative icing gel
1 small tube red decorative icing gel
Carefully twist cookies apart; set aside the halves with cream filling.
Save plain halves for another use. In a microwave or heavy saucepan,
melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Holding each
cherry by the stem, dip in melted chocolate, then press onto the bottom
of a chocolate kiss. Place on the cream filling of cookie, with cherry
stem extending beyond cookie edge. For ears, place slivered almonds
between the cherry and kiss. Refrigerate until set. With green gel, pipe
holly leaves on the cream. With red gel , pipe holly berries between
leaves and pipe eyes on each chocolate kiss. Store in an airtight
container at room temperature.
I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.
