Dr. Gollum came home tonight with a little white box. Inside the box were two teeny, tiny chocolate mice. You can see one mouse (above) in the corner of the glass compote, hiding behind a strawberry. (If you'd like a closer look, just click on the picture and it will enlarge.)
I just had a fit, as we say Down South.
And of course I gave Dr. G a kiss. Here's the first mouse:
And here's mouse number two.
The body is a Hershey Kiss, attached to a chocolate covered cherry--the long, red stem forms the mouse's "tail."
The ears are two almonds.
The eyes appear to be little dots of royal icing--white with little dabs of chocolate.
- long stemmed maraschino cherries
- dipping chocolate
- Hershey's Kisses
- tubes of white and chocolate icing
Coming soon: pictures of the tea party (after the Bandwith Bandit goes to sleep).
