Eek! It's A Strawberry Mouse!

Is this adorable or what? So sweet...
These mischievous mice will have your kids happily nibbling on a healthy snack in no time.

~Strawberry Mice~
RECIPE INGREDIENTS: Fresh strawberries Mini chocolate chips Black decorators' icing Almond slivers Toothpick Red lace licorice Wedge of Cheese (Your choice)

1. For each mouse, slice a small section from the side of a strawberry so it sits flat.
2. Press a mini chocolate chip into the tip for a nose, using a small dab of icing to secure it in place, if needed.
3. Add icing eyes and stick 2 almond slivers into the top of the berry for ears.
4. For a tail, use a toothpick to carve a small hole in the back of the berry and push the end of a piece of licorice lace into the hole.
Serve these berry cute treats with small triangles of cheese.
