Mice Cream

I found this recipe in Taste of Home Halloween Party Favorites cookbook. I thought it was really cute and simple. Allyson and I made them tonight together. It took about five minutes. The recipe serves 6, but you can just make one, if you want to.

Mice Cream

1 pint vanilla ice cream
1 pkg (6-count) single serve graham cracker crusts
12 chocolate-covered mint cookies (I used Oreos that I broke in half.)
3 chocolate twigs, halved or 6 pieces (3 inches each) black shoestring licorice (We left the tails off!)
18 brown M&Ms (Other colors look cute, too!)
2 tsp chocolate sprinkles

Place one round scoop of ice cream into each crust. Tuck two cookies for ears and twigs or licorice for tail into ice cream. Press M&Ms in place for eyes and nose. Place sprinkles around nose for whiskers. Serves 6.

My little mouse really enjoyed this simple and tasty treat!
