Add something creative to your Christmas celebration. Enjoy these mice shaped shortbread cookies.

Ingredients

15
maraschino cherries with stems, drained
2/3
cup white baking chips or chocolate chips
1/2
teaspoon vegetable oil
1
package (5.3 ounces) shortbread triangles
30
sliced almonds
15
white baking chips or chocolate chips
Shredded coconut
15
red cinnamon candies

Directions

  • 1 Cover work area with piece of waxed paper about 18 inches long. Dry cherries with paper towels.
  • 2 Place 2/3 cup chips and the oil in 6-ounce custard cup. Microwave uncovered on High 1 minute to 1 minute 10 seconds or until chips are softened; stir until smooth.
  • 3 Hold 1 cherry by stem (mouse tail), and dip into melted chips, covering completely. Immediately place on shortbread triangle, with tail at 45-degree angle. Place 2 of the sliced almonds against front of cherry to form mouse ears. Repeat with remaining cherries, shortbread and almonds.
  • 4 Using the remaining melted chips as glue and a toothpick to spread the melted chips, attach the flat side of a whole chip (flat side back) to the base of the almonds to form the mouse head. Using melted chips as glue, attach a few shreds of coconut for the whiskers and a cinnamon candy for the nose.
  • 5 Let cool without moving 50 to 60 minutes or until melted chip mixture is firm and completely set. Store in cool place up to 1 week.
Tips  

We think the shortbread cookies resemble a wedge of cheese, but you can use other purchased or homemade flat-surfaced cookies for the base of your mice decorations. A merry mouse can add the final touch to your holiday food platters. Kids will have fun placing mice on a saucer next to Grandma and Grandpa's cups of coffee or on a plate of cookies for Santa.
