Good times with some Cosmic Cuisine™
Baking small candy papers
Take out the Cherries to sort nice round, plump bodies.
Pat the cherries dry
Dry the cherries selecting nice strong tails.
Lay out the almond slices for ears. Select matching forms so the ears look similar in shape.
Unwrap the Hershey kisses.
Melt the chocolate chips in a deep small bowl to dip the cherries in easily.
Microwave about 1.5 minutes checking to see the consistency, stir the chocolate chips and try another minute.
Dip the cherries in the melted chocolate chips using the stem to hold it.
Immediately press a chocolate kiss together with the cherry holding the stem and the point of the kiss.
Place about 6 of the chocolate covered cherries and kisses on aluminum foil to add the ears of almond slices.
Gently slip the almond slices between the cherry body and kiss while chocolate is still soft.
The chocolate mice are ready to go in the freezer to firm the chocolate.
Cool 6 mice at a time in the freezer for 3 to 4 minutes so you can add the eyes when fully firm.
Add water to the icing crystals and dot on the kiss to form eyes.
Place the mice in individual candy papers to serve and display.
For Valentines day try heart cake decorations for the look of love! Add a dot of chocolate where you want the eyes to stick.
