Party MiceThese would make fantastic party favors! Aren’t they adorable?

I was looking up recipe ideas for peanut butter balls made out of melted chocolate and found these mice.  Super easy to make.

Here’s the recipe:

Chocolate Almond Bark Chocolate Flavored Coating
1 Jar pitted Maraschino Cherries with Stems(1 cherry per mouse)
Chocolate Kisses (1 per mouse)
Sliced Almonds (2 per mouse)
1 tube Cake decorating gel (for eyes)

Melt Almond Bark according to package directions. Holding cherry by stem, dip into melted chocolate (stem becomes mouse’s tail), lay sideways on waxed paper so that bottom of cherry is not touching paper. Immediately place flat side of Chocolate kiss to bottom of cherry. Place 2 almond slices as “ears” between chocolate kiss and cherry, hold until set. When dry, use decorating gel to “dot” eyes on top of chocolate kiss. Enjoy!

Remember the old days when we got some of that silly putty in an egg? Well, leave it to the Girl Scouts to again make this stuff and send it home with the girls! lol! My daughter had a blast with it last night!

Here’s the recipe to make your own:

Silly Putty


1 cup white glue (Elmer’s)

1 cup liquid starch

food coloring

First combine glue and coloring in plastic container. Next add starch a little at a time, stirring constantly. Keep stirring until

mixture looks rubbery and like putty. Add more starch if it is too gooey. Store in a plastic bag or an airtight container.

Bounce it, stretch it, make transfers of the comics — very useful stuff.
