Fun Fact: Dormice (Glis glis) was a delicacy in Ancient Rome. The rodent species was either roasted and dipped in honey or stuffed with a mixture of pork and pine nuts. That doesn't sound very appealing nowadays, so we've added a Chocolate twist to the infamous Dormice!
INGREDIENTS (substitute with allergy-safe alternatives as needed):
• 24 Golden Oreo cookies
• 1 cup (6 ounces) Dipping chocolate
• 24 red maraschino cherries with stems, well drained
• 24 milk chocolate kisses
• 48 Candy eyeballs
• Rice Krispies or icing heart decoration
• 1 small tube red decorative icing gel
Allergens: Milk, Wheat and Soy.
Carefully place cookies apart on a cookie sheet.
In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and stir until smooth.
Holding each cherry by the stem, dip in melted chocolate, then press onto the bottom of a chocolate kiss. Place on the cookie, with cherry stem extending beyond cookie edge.
For ears, carefully place a Rice Krispy or icing heart in between the cherry and the kisses candy. Refrigerate until set.
With red gel, pipe a nose on the dormice.
Store in the refrigerator.
