On the 11th Day of Christmas...


Today I made a little homemade gift for some of my coworker's kids. I decided something edible might be good this holiday. This is an oldie, but a fun one. Thanks, Carrilee for telling me about these cute little guys years ago...it's been awhile since I made mice. Carrilee made these on a cheese shaped cake, and I always thought these would also be cute at a Cinderella party. This year's gift, and day 11's activity were edible mice. I thought these would be cute in a little box, and inside small stockings, but the bigger box will have to do this year:
"Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse..."
*Directions: Melt semi-sweet morsels and dip cherries (with stems), press a kiss to the side, and insert two almond slivers for ears. Take a mini-m&m, or red hot and attach it with a bit of chocolate for the nose. Put a dab of icing on the kiss for eyes, and use a toothpick and more melted chocolate for the pupils.
