Chocolate Christmas Mice Cookies

Time: 40 mins


  • 24 Oreo Double Stuff cookies
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 1/2 teaspoon butter
  • 1 ounce paraffin wax, chopped (see Notes)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (see Notes)
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 (3 ounce) package red decorating gel (clear)
  • 1 (3 ounce) package green decorating gel (clear)


  • 1 Carefully twist Oreo cookies apart. Set aside the ones with the cream filling on them; save plain halves for another use. (You could make crumbs for pie crust)
  • 2 In microwave, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth.
  • 3 Holding cherry by stem, dip in melted chocolate, then press onto the bottom of a chocolate kiss.
  • 4 Place cherry and kiss onto the cream filling of the cookie. Let stem extend over the edge.
  • 5 Make ears for your mouse by placing sliced almonds between the cherry and the kiss (before the chocolate sets).
  • 6 Place in refrigerator until chocolate sets.
  • 7 With green decorative gel, pipe holly leaves on white cream of cookie by the mouse.
  • 8 Pipe holly berries between the leaves with the red gel.
  • 9 Pipe eyes on each chocolate kiss.
  • 10 Store in airtight container at room temperature.
  • 11 TIPS:
  • 12 I used Almond Bark instead of the chocolate chips and eliminated the need for shortening.
  • 13 Maraschino cherries need to have stems and be well-drained.
  • 14 Keep chocolate hot by putting in a bowl over a steaming pan of water.
  • 15 I used a teapot, took the lid off and placed my bowl over it after melting chocolate in microwave.
  • 16 You can use a clean eyebrow tweezer or something else to grasp the cherries by the stems to dunk in chocolate.
  • 17 Make extras because everyone at your party will want one to take home to show around and to use as a pattern to make their own!
