  • 1 medium microwave-safe bowl
  • 1 spoon
  • toothpicks (to get chocolate on small pieces)


  • Set up a workstation so that you have all of your ingredients ready to go. I like to use small bowls to separate everything out and for easy access while assembling the mice. You also need. apiece of wax paper to place the mice on to dry. It's also helpful to place this on a baking sheet so that you can move it around if needed.
  • Place the almond bark or chocolate chips in a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 60 seconds. Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir the chocolate. Repeat in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is fully melted.
  • Dip a cherry in the melted chocolate and allow the excess chocolate to drip off. Carefully place a chocolate kiss at the end of the cherry opposite the stem to create the head. Place the cherry with the kiss on the wax paper to start setting.
  • After you have dipped all of the cherries and added the heads, next are the ears. Dip the end of a sliced almond in the melted chocolate and then place it at the top of the head to make an ear. Repeat with another almond for the second ear. Do this step on all of the mice.
  • Now it's time for the eyes. To get the eyes to stick, you can use a toothpick or the tip of your finger to place a small amount of melted chocolate on the back of a candy eyeball and then place it on the chocolate kiss. Repeat with a second eye and then with all of the mice.
  • Last is the red nose. Make a very small ball at the end of each kiss to make a small red nose on each mouse.
  • Allow the mice to set before enjoying. You can also speed up this process in the fridge.



  • A toothpick can help you get the melted chocolate on some of the smaller ingredients like the candy eyeballs.
  • Keep a wet paper towel next to your assembly line to wipe your hands so you don't get chocolate all over.
  • If the chocolate gets too stiff before you are done making all of the mice, simply place the bowl back in the microwave and zap for an additional 30 seconds and stir well.
  • Allow the mice to set before enjoying. You can also speed up this process in the fridge.
  • Store any leftover mice covered on the counter or in the fridge for 3-4 days.
