Chocolate Mice

Bensmom526 originally posted this in What’s for Dinner October 2007:
Chocolate Mice
4 (1 ounce) squares
semisweet
chocolate
1/3 cup sour cream
1 cup finely crushed chocolate sugar wafer cookies
1/3 cup chocolate cookie crumbs




Melt the chocolate, and combine with sour cream. Stir in 1 cup chocolate wafer crumbs. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate until firm
Roll by level tablespoonfuls into balls.<it was easier to roll ball in crumbs go back mold it then re-roll> Mold to a slight point at one end (the nose).
Roll dough in confectioners sugar (for white mice), or in chocolate wafer crumbs (for dark mice). I used cinammon sugar on some to look dirty
On each mouse, place dragees in appropriate spot for eyes, almond slices for ears, and cut caramel cube into 4 slices roll between hands to make a snake for tail
Refrigerate for at least two hours until firm
It's a little work but they are too cute I tinted coconut yellow and put chocolate sprinkles to make it look uhh "lived in" =0)
