Chocolate Mice

As todays is my youngest sons birthday (Happy Birthday Joe), I thought I would post one of his favourite treats. Even at 27, he still likes these chocoloate rodents.


  • 4 - 1 Oz. squares semisweet chocolate

  • 1/3 Cup sour cream

  • 1 Cup chocolate cookie crumbs

  • 1/3 Cup chocolate cookie crumbs (for decorating)

  • 1/3 Cup confectioners' sugar

  • 24 Silver balls decorating candy

  • 1/4 Cup sliced almonds

  • 12 - 2 Inch pieces long red shoestring licorice

Melt the chocolate, and combine with sour cream. Stir in 1 cup chocolate cookie crumbs. Cover and refrigerate until firm.

Roll by level tablespoonfuls into balls. Mold to a slight point at one end (the nose).

Roll dough in confectioners sugar (for white mice), and in chocolate cookie crumbs (for dark mice). On each mouse, place silver candy balls in appropriate spot for eyes, almond slices for ears, and a licorice string for the tail.

Refrigerate for at least two hours, until firm.
