Chocolate Covered Cherry Halloween Mice

I came across the cutest little dessert for kids and, of course, adults, to make for Halloween.
It is quite easy and quick to make.

You will need:
  • 24 maraschino cherries with stems  
  • Waxed paper
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 24 milk chocolate Hershey's Kisses, unwrapped
  • 48 almond slices
  • Tube red decorating gel
 To make the Mice:
  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 until smooth.
  3. Holding a cherry by its stem, dip it into the melted chocolate and swirl it around to completely cover the cherry. Set it 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. Repeat to make 24 mice. 
  4. Dab beady red eyes on either side of the chocolate kiss with the red gel.
  5. Refrigerate until set       
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator til ready to serve.

                                         Sooo . . .      cute!

    And, yummy!       A friend enjoying this treat!
