 Three blind mice, three blind mice,
See how they run, see how they run,
They all ran after the farmer’s wife,
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife,
Did you ever see such a thing in your life,
As three blind mice?

Christmas Mice

1 package Oreo Cookies
1 jar marashino cherries with stems
1 package Hershey Kisses (keep refrigerated)
Sliced almonds
Melting chocolate (that hardens)
1 tube of red decorating gel

Enjoy! From my kitchen to yours.

Step 1:  Remove one side of the Oreo Cookie, keeping the side with the cream filling.

Step 5:  Attach Hershey Kiss to cherry, holding for a few seconds. *I keep the kisses refrigerated, if you don’t they tend to melt in your hands and leave indentations.

Step 6:  Gently lay on top of Oreo Cookie.

Step 7:  Take 2 almond slices and press between the head (kiss) and body (cherry), holding for a few seconds.

Step 8:  Using red decorating gel or frosting add eyes and nose.
