Some mice will be stirring this Christmas in your house when you make these adorable Chocolate Covered Christmas Mice, but don’t be surprised if none are there for Santa when he comes swooping down the chimney. These little mice remind me of my childhood when all of us – my grandma, mom, aunts,sister and I – would compete in making as many mice as possible during the whole night.

Chocolate Cherry Christmas Mice – a very simple recipe which allows your creativity to be expressed at the same time. My little mice have always had the longest chocolate tails, and my sister’s had big white ears. And I am going to make tonight as many little mice as possible to keep me company during this night, and, who knows, maybe at midnight some prince will knock on my door and make my Christmas wish come true!

Ingredients

  • 12 Maraschino Cherries with stems, drained
  • 1/2 cup Light Cocoa Candy Melts
  • 12 Hersheys Kisses, unwrapped
  • 24 Almond slices
  • 1/8 cup White Candy Melts

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Melt light cocoa candy melts in microwave or in double boiler.
  3. Holding a cherry by the stem, dip in the melted chocolate, rolling to coat completely.
  4. Allow excess chocolate to drain off and lay cherry on its side on the parchment.
  5. Place an chocolate kiss on chocolate coated cherry (candy flat side against the end opposite the stem end of a cherry)
  6. Gently insert 2 almond slices between the cherry and the kiss candy to create ears.
  7. Place in refrigerator for a 5 minutes and allow to cool and set.
  8. Melt white candy melts in microwave or in double boiler.
  9. Using toothpick, gather up small bit of melted white chocolate and paint on each eye.
  10. Allow chocolate to set.

  1. My granddaughter (who is now 18) and I have been making these for years. She has always enjoyed taking those little micro candies used for cake decorating and making eyes the color of everyone in the family. Making these with her has been and always will be one of my favorite memories.
    And by the way, I am now following you on Pinterest because I have made so many of the recipes you have on your board. I hope to try some of your postings real soon.
