chocolate cherry mouse

My friend Rachel brought a whole tray of chocolate covered sweet cherry mice to the celebration of my mother's life this past weekend. This was so thoughtful and apropos because my mother's name is Cherry.


Cherries are dipped in tempered chocolate, given sliced almond ears, chocolate chip noses, and red candy eyes.
So cute! And yummy, too!
