Reviews for Christmas Mice Cookies

"I make these cookies every year. I use Archway Dutch Cocoa cookies - I put the cookies in a food processor. Once the cookie crumbs, sour cream and chocolate are mixed I refrigerate for a couple hours before they can actually be handled without a mess. These little treats CAN be frozen without any problem. Although the grandkids are getting older, they still love these little guys."
"These are so cute! I made them for Christmas this year. I couldn't find chocolate Nilla wafers so I used chocolate graham crackers."
"I made these at christmas time and they were a hit, I even made heart shaped ones for my hubby for Valentines day. And i plan to make again and again, LOVE EM.Used chocolate teddy grahams as the cookie since i can't find chocolate nilla wafers. And it's great!"
"made mine with choc-covered marchino cherries with stems, mounted on 1/2 sandwich cookie. SUPER HIT FOR ALL. ALREADY GOT REQUESTS BY COOKIE-SELLERS AT CHURCH FOR NEXT YEAR."
"Used "Chocolate Cats" cookies from Trader Joe's for the chocolate wafer cookies. Did not make the mice but made "truffles" out of this super easy recipe and rolled them in a variety of crumbs - graham cracker crumbs, coconut, finely crushed candy canes and finely chopped pecans. Very pretty and tasty! Tripled the recipe."
