Nancy's Chocolate Mice

Holiday mice
If you are looking for a unique addition to your holiday repertoire of cakes and cookies I suggest you try these adorable chocolate mice. They make a wonderful hostess gift and are a perfect addition to any desert table. 
Place ears on before chocolate hardens but not too soon or they will droop
 My friend Nancy has a real talent for finding distinctive and interesting ways to entertain. She has a wonderful memory for retaining good ideas that she discovers throughout the year and always finds the perfect occasion to share them with family and friends. Last New Years Eve she prepared these adorable chocolate mice and everyone just loved them. They are easy to prepare and will be the hit of any gathering they attend.

A fun addition to any party
