Put sponge in a mixing
bowl, add sufficient sugar syrup and mix together to make a soft dough.
Divide the dough into
equal portions and shape each into an oval. Further press one side slightly to give it the shape of a mouse and keep them on a plate.
Keep a cooling rack
over a large plate. Dip each mouse in melted chocolate so that it is completely coated and then keep it on the rack. Excess chocolate will drip into the plate.
Insert two almond
halves on either side of the head of each mouse to make its ears. Use a couple of bits of silver vermicelli to make its eyes and the cherry triangle to make its nose. Insert a fried noodle or spaghetti piece at the back of the mouse to resemble its tail.
Keep the mice in the
refrigerator till the chocolate sets.
