    Chocolate Mice
    4 (1 ounce) squares
    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)
