Has anyone made this recipe?
- Did you like it?
- Would it hold up well to be made a few days before?

CHRISTMAS MICE

1 jar maraschino cherries with stems
1 package double stuffed Oreos
1 package Hershey's kisses
1 tube red decorating gel
1 tube green decorating gel
Slivered almonds
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons shortening

Drain cherries well and count them. Unwrap an equal amount of chocolate kisses and carefully remove one side of the chocolate cookie from the Oreo, leaving the cream filling on the other side. (Save plain side for another use.)

Melt the chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave and stir till smooth. Dip the cherries in the chocolate, shake to remove excess. Set the cherry on the flat side of chocolate kiss, then position them on the cream filling of the Oreo, slightly off center with the stem hanging over the edge. Position 2 slivered almonds for ears. Use red gel for eyes. Use the green gel to draw 2 holly leaves slightly apart, put a red berry in the center with the red gel.

Those are so cute! I know the mice would hold up (i've done those ahead, just not on top of cookies)

I would imagine you could put them in an airtight container so the cookies wouldn't get stale?

Vicki, what a cute idea. They sound like they would be delicious also. I would worry about the cookie part getting soft/stale.

Hi I have done these but didn't separate the oreos. I bought the white fudge covered oreo and put the mice on top of it. I kept breaking the cookie every time I tried to separate. they stay better too don't get soggy.
Hope this helps, I have put a pic of ones I made about 5 years ago, with some choco covered pretzels

Excellent idea, with the cookie covered in chocolate already, it wouldn't get stale. I love making the chocolate covered pretzels also. They always go quick around here.

Linda,
What a great idea to use white fudge covered Oreos! I had heard other people on TOHBB complain about the Oreos breaking, too. Thank you for the review and hint.

Vicki
