Get your cherries out of the jar and onto a few paper towels. The drier they are, the better. If you've ever melted chocolate, you know that the slightest bit of liquid can ruin the consistency of the chocolate. Place on wax paper.
Unwrap Hershey Kisses.
Melt the chocolate chips. This can be done using the microwave at 30% power and in 1-minute intervals, stirring in between, or placing a glass bowl in a couple of inches of boiling water. Stir frequently.
Once chocolate is melted, dip cherries into chocolate covering cherry completely.
Once cherries are covered, stick them to the bottom of a Hershey Kiss. Place on wax or parchment paper to dry.
After about 2-3 minutes, stick the sliced almonds just behind the Hershey Kiss. These are the mice ears.
Using the tube of frosting, place eyes on the Hershey Kiss.
Place in refrigerator until served or pack up in a cooler for travel if the weather is warm.
