Not a Creature was Stirring....

I found a picture of these cute little mice in an old cookbook of mine. After showing it to my daughter, we decided to make a small batch of them.

They were so easy and turned out really cute.

All you need are Oreo's, Kisses, chocolate chips, maraschino cherries, sliced almonds, shortening and red and green gel.

Carefully take apart the Oreo's and save the tops for something else. Unwrap all of those kisses!.

Melt 1 cup of chocolate chips in 2 teaspoons of shortening (I melted our in the microwave). Dip the cherries into the melted chocolate. Place it on an Oreo and attached a kiss to the cherry. Stick two sliced almonds between them for ears.

Use the red gel for eyes and use the red and green to make a little holly leaf on the cookie.

This recipe will use an entire jar of cherries (about 24).


  1. Those are so adorable! I plan to make them for Christmas!

  2. Too darn cute!! I'm going to make them for my next stamp camp!

  3. So cute . . . will have to save this link so my daughter and son can make them over the holidays.

  4. They are very cute! I would not want to eat one they are to cute but I bet they tasted o so good!!
