Not Even a Mouse

My grandma made these cuties a couple of years ago for Christmas. We had a small group pot luck the other night...one of my dear friends had an issue with a certain small creature building a nest in her grill...so I couldn't help but make these to poke some fun at her (LOVE You Joyce!)

Melt some chocolate, drain a can of cherries (with stems), unwrap hershey kisses and open a bag of slivered almonds.

Dip your cherries in the chocolate and let harden on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.

You can carefully brush the chocolate onto the back of a kiss or do like me and just dip it in the bowl of melted chocolate...it all works....stick it on the cherry.

Dip the bottom edge of 2 almonds and put in behind the kiss.

And there you have it, a bunch of mice that no one can resist!

How clever and cute! That's about the only mouse I'd want around my house.
