Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Drain the cherries and pat them dry with paper towels.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper.
  3. Place the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and heat them until smooth, working in 15-second intervals, stirring between each.
  4. Holding a cherry by its stem, dip it into the chocolate and swirl it around to completely cover the fruit.
  5. Set it on its side on the waxed paper and immediately press a Hershey's Kiss onto the cherry for the head.
  6. For the ears, gently wedge two almond slices between the Kiss and the cherry.
  7. Repeat to make 24 mice.
  8. Make a thick icing by mixing one cup of confectioners' sugar with a teaspoon of water.
  9. If the mixture is too dry, stir in more water, a few drops at a time, until you have a thick, smooth icing.
  10. Divide the icing among three small bowls.
  11. Tint one bowl of icing black and one pink.
  12. Spoon each of the three icings into a plastic bag and snip a tiny corner from each.
  13. Pipe white eye dots on the mice, then refrigerate until until set, about ten minutes.
  14. Add black pupils and pink noses.
  15. Keep the mice in the fridge until you're ready to serve them or give them away.
