  • 24 red maraschino cherries with stems, drained
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons shortening
  • 24 chocolate kisses, unwrapped
  • 48 sliced almonds
  • Red decorating gel


  • In a small, microwave-safe bowl, melt 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and 2 teaspoons shortening. Stir until smooth. Holding each cherry by the stem, dip into chocolate mixture, leaving stem uncovered.
  • Immediately press cherry onto the flat side of a chocolate kiss. Set on baking sheet or cutting board lined with wax paper.
  • Place two sliced almonds between cherry and chocolate kiss for ears.
  • From the tube or using a toothpick, place two dabs of red decorating gel on mice, making the eyes. Black decorating gel will do if red is not available. Refrigerate until set.
  • Serve and enjoy! Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.
