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.
