Yield: about 10 mice
- 4 (1-ounce) squares semi-sweet chocolate
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 1 cup finely crushed chocolate wafer cookies
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
- Small candies of your choice for eyes and noses
- Black whip licorice for tails
In a large mixing bowl, combine the chilled chocolate with the sour cream.
Add the chocolate wafer cookie crumbs and mix well.
By teaspoons, roll the dough into a slight oval shape. Form one end into a slight point for the nose.
Place the cocoa and powdered sugar into separate small bowls. For dark mice, roll the ovals in cocoa powder. For white mice, roll the ovals in powdered sugar.
On each mouse, press in candies for the eyes and nose and almond slices for the ears. Attach a licorice whip for a tail.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours until firm.
