Reviews for Christmas Mice Cookies
"These are so easy and everyone thought they were so cute! They were delicious, too!"
"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!"
