Ingredients

  • Sponge cake, cut into medium pieces 300 gms
  • Sugar syrup as required
  • Dark chocolate, melted 250 gms
  • Almonds, halved vertically a few
  • Silver vermicelli as required
  • Cherries, cut into triangles a few
  • Noodles or spaghetti, deep-fried a few

Methods

  • 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.
  • Arrange them on a serving platter and serve.
