"Snowman S'mores"

Snowman S'mores

For each S'more:

3 ounces white chocolate morsels
2 pretzel sticks
1/2 of a 1.55-ounce Hershey milk chocolate bar
1/2 graham cracker
2 marshmallows
Orange decorating gel
Black decorating gel

You Will Also Need:

Microwave oven
Glass bowl
Microwaveable plate
Wax paper
Sharp kitchen tool

  1. In a glass bowl, melt the white chocolate morsels in a microwave oven on high for 1 minute. Stir. Continue melting 30 seconds at a time stirring between each 30 seconds so that white chocolate doesn't caramelize.
  2. Dip pretzel sticks in the melted morsels, place them on wax paper, and lay them aside to set.
  3. Place the chocolate candy bar on the graham cracker. Place the graham cracker on a microwaveable plate. Microwave for 10 seconds, just long enough to adhere the chocolate to the cracker but still keep its shape.
  4. Using melted white morsels as "glue," stack marshmallows on top of the chocolate candy bar to form the body of the snowman.
  5. With a sharp kitchen tool, pierce the sides of the bottom marshmallow and insert the pretzels for arms.
  6. Make dots with orange (for nose) and black (for eyes and mouth) decorating gel.
  7. Sit back and watch your youngsters enjoy!

"Chocolate Mice"

Chocolate Mice

12 Maraschino cherries, with stems (for bodies and tails of mice)
6 ounces semisweet chocolate morsels, melted
12 chocolate-covered graham crackers
12 Hershey's Kisses (for heads and noses of mice)
24 almond slices

You Will Also Need:

Paper towels
Microwave oven
Glass bowl
Red decorating gel

  1. Drain the cherries and pat them completely dry with paper towels
  2. Melt chocolate morsels in microwave 1 minute on high. Stir. Continue melting 30 seconds at a time, stirring between each 30 seconds so that chocolate does not caramelize.
  3. Holding a cherry by the stem, dredge the cherry through the melted chocolate and place it on half of a graham cracker, stem pointing outward.
  4. Dredge the bottom of a Hershey's Kiss through the chocolate coating and place it in front of the cherry. The melted chocolate will act as a type of glue, holding the Kiss in place.
  5. Dip the narrow end of an almond slice in the melted chocolate and press it to the flat side of the Kiss to make an ear. Repeat for the other side.
  6. With the decorating gel, place dots for the eyes and the nose.

Makes 12

CANDY'S NOTE: "'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a …". These chocolate mice are fun for kids to make and are a perfect complement to Clement C. Moore's classic tale.
