"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."
