Chocolate Covered Cherry Mice

These delicious treats are so easy to make and fun to eat! It's the perfect dessert for a Valentine's Day party (or any party where the guests love chocolate!)
Servings: 24


  • 24   Maraschino cherries WITH STEMS
  • ½ small bag of chocolate for melting I used milk chocolate chips
  • 24 Hershey Kisses
  • 48 Sliced almonds
  • 1   Tube of frosting for eyes I used white, but you can use any light color


  • 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.
