Okay, I know that this is a bit irreverent, but tis the season to be jolly. I can't even take credit as the sentiment is from "Modern Family" and the mice are from another blog. I'm taking this to the annual Christmas pot luck dinner party and will no doubt wow them.
Maraschino Cherries with stems
Semisweet Chocolate Chips
White Writing Gel
Take a chocolate chip, swirl side down, and put it on the front of the cherry. The liquid chocolate will be the glue. Pick two similar sized almond slices and stick them above the head/chip. If the chocolate gets too stiff, just nuke it again for a few seconds. When you are all finished put them in the fridge to firm up.
In about a half hour (or more) snip off the end of a tube of white writing gel and carefully dab on the two eyes. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.
This will be the first time our hostess will happily welcome mice in her house.
