These are the cutest critters I have ever made! It's a twist on your average truffle and looks great on a serving plate. Your visitors are sure to enjoy. You can make them for young or young at heart. They are sure to be a favourite of yours as they are of mine. My 3-year old loved them as well as my co-workers! Enjoy!

  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips

  • 2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs, divided

  • 1/3 cup sour cream

  • 36 red round candy sprinkles

  • 5 peach slices (candy)

  • 18 pieces black shoestring licorice (2 inches each)


Melt chocolate chips in microwave; 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 1 cup of chocolate crumbs to coat. Position red candy sprinkles for eyes. Cut each peach slice into 4 pieces. Then cut each of the four pieces into 2 pieces for each ear. Add licorice pieces for tails. 


What do you think?
I have all the ingredients to make these little mice for a special little girl named Chelsea. I am wondering if these freeze or how long will they keep in the fridge? These are so adorable and it will be a treat to make them for my favorite little Newfoundlander here in Alberta!
