Hershey’s Christmas Mice Candy

15 Hershey’s Kisses, unwrapped
15 maraschino cherries with stems (make sure they are well-drained and dry)
15 red hots candies or any small red candy for the noses
1/2 cup chocolate chips, for melting
30 peanut halves (for the ears)
A small tube of black icing (for the eyes)
Prepare Your Ingredients: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Have all your ingredients ready: Hershey’s Kisses, maraschino cherries, red hots, chocolate chips, and peanut halves.

Melt Chocolate Chips: Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl or using a double boiler. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate. Stir until smooth.

Assemble the Mice: Dip a maraschino cherry into the melted chocolate, covering it completely. Then, press a Hershey’s Kiss onto one side of the cherry, creating the head of the mouse.

Add Ears and Nose: While the chocolate is still wet, gently press two peanut halves between the cherry and the Hershey’s Kiss to form the ears. Attach a red hot candy at the tip of the cherry for the nose.

Add Eyes: Use the tube of black icing to carefully dot two small eyes on the Hershey’s Kiss.

Set the Mice: Place the assembled mouse on the parchment paper. Repeat with the remaining cherries, Hershey’s Kisses, and other ingredients.

Chill to Set: Refrigerate the mice for about 10-15 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.

Serve: Once set, your Hershey’s Christmas Mice Candy are ready to be served. They make a delightful addition to any holiday table or as a cute homemade gift.

These Christmas mice are not only delicious but also a fun craft-like activity to do with family, especially with kids. Enjoy creating and sharing these sweet and whimsical treats!
