When is this all right? Mice on the table!

Actually it turned out to be fun!

At our golf luncheon two weeks ago, there was a favor at each place that was a mouse sitting on a piece of cheese.  They were so cute and, I’m told by Peg, Diane and Marsha who made them, pretty easy.

Here’s how they made them.

Bake sugar cookies (make sure they’re not round but “cheese” shape, whatever that is) and as soon as they come out of the oven use a straw (wiggling it around) to make random holes in each cookie, ala swiss cheese.

For the mouse, hold a maraschino cherry by its stem and dip it in dipping chocolate.  Immediately put a Kiss candy against the still wet chocolate, in the position shown. Inserting two pieces of slivered almonds in between to make the ears.  They said the hardest part was picking the little green candies out of a container of multi-color sprinkles with tweezers to make the eyes.

Stick each mouse to a cookie with a little bit of the dipping chocolate.

Presto!  Something I never thought I’d say, “Cute, edible mice!”

Good work, Peg, Diane and Marsha.  A definitely fun conversation piece for our luncheon.

    This is so cute, but who in the world thought of it? It just reminds me once again of my own lack of creativity.

  2. Hilary says:

    That’s adorable and creative. If you can’t build a better mousetrap.. just build a better mouse. And chocolate is ALWAYS better.

  3. Amy Ostrowski says:

    These are adorable! I don’t think I would have the patience to make these. I’m a no fuss girl.

  4. Sandra says:

    I know, Linda. Where do people get ideas like this? They were SO cute.

    Hilary — This is definitely the ONLY kind of mouse I like! 🙂

    Amy — I don’t think they were all that difficult — until they got to those little tiny eyes that had to be put on with tweezers!

  5. Margaret says:

    These are absolutely adorable!

  6. Sandra says:

    I agree, Margaret. I was totally charmed by them. 🙂

  7. Cheryl says:

    That is such a cute idea….could be a “little” side job for you in your spare ?? time!! 🙂

  8. Sandra says:

    What a great idea, Cheryl!! And you could be my assistant — the one who picks the teeny tiny green beads out of the multi-color sprinkles with tweezers! 🙂

  9. C. Beth says:

    Made ’em! 🙂 Instead of sprinkles for the eyes, I put extra melted chocolate in a Ziploc, cut a TINY bit of a corner off, and squeezed it on. Picture: http://twitpic.com/53dbmx

    Beth — Yours look great! I think I like your bigger eyes even better, and I KNOW they were alot easier than picking all those little sprinkles out with the tweezers. Good job!

    • C. Beth says:

      Thanks, Sandra! I took them to a potluck at church. We had WAY too much dessert…but the mice cookies were one of the only desserts that got 100% eaten! They were a hit!
