In preparation for Halloween,I have the mice cookie recipe. We are freaks about Halloween! I love the recipes that we find, the Halloween bash is going to carry on this year, even though my sister has her house up for sale, the party is in her outbuilding every year.
This time, I am going to tell you about a neat kit sold for making pretzels for Halloween. Wal-Mart is selling them for around $10, everything you need to make the pretzels is in there, except the pretzels.
They are too cute, the witch's fingers are so adorable.
Here's the mice recipe I used last year:
4 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
1/3 cup sour cream
1 cup chocolate cookie crumbs
1/3 cup chocolate cookie crumbs
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
24 silver dragees decorating candy
1/4 cup sliced almonds
12 (2 inch) pieces long red vine licorice (chocolate if you can find it)
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 dragees in appropriate spot for eyes, almond slices for ears, and a licorice string for the tail. I used these little black sugar balls I found at Mangelsen's for the eyes, they are PERFECT!!
Refrigerate for at least two hours, until firm.
Yield 3 dozen
