Battle Formations

My legion of atheist mice are ready for the War on Xmas (kidding)
This is supposed to be an atheist / food blog, RIGHT???  These candy mice make a stunning presentation and are totally fun to make:

Candy Mice

1 package slivered almonds
1 bag of Hershey's chocolate kisses
2 jars of maraschino cherries with stems
Chocolate bark
Red gel icing.

Place wax paper over a baking sheet.  In a microwave-safe dish, melt the chocolate bark in the microwave until just soft.  Do not overheat.

Dip one cherry at a time in the melted chocolate, being sure not to pull off the stem.  Place the chocolate-covered cherry on the wax paper with the stem pointing up and afix a Hershey's chocolate kiss to the front before the chocolate sets.

Give the candy mouse two almond slivers for ears and use the red gel icing to make eyes.  Repeat until you have used up all the cherries and then eat the remainder of the bag of kisses (that last part is optional).

Refrigerate until ready to serve.
