“These whimsical little mice taste like truffles and have been a family favorite for 15 years.
We so enjoy the smiles and laughs they always get! Every Christmas, we make sure to have enough for friends, neighbors and get-togethers.”
Deborah Zabor - Fort Erie, Ontario
2/3 cup Nestlé® Tollhouse® Semi-Sweet Morsels
2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs (about 40 wafers), divided
1/3 cup sour cream
36 red nonpareils
1/4 cup sliced almonds
18 pieces black shoestring licorice (2 inches each)
In a microwave, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Stir in 1 cup crumbs and sour cream. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
For each mouse, roll about 1 tablespoon chocolate mixture into a ball, tapering one end to resemble a mouse. Roll in remaining chocolate crumbs to coat. Position nonpareils for eyes, almond slices for ears and licorice pieces for tails. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
