    These are amazing! I made these for my son's birthday party, and they were an absolute hit. The kids all adored them, and the adults did too! I didn't bring a single mouse home with me, and the kids all begged to come over and make more! I would recommend a little more preparation time. The recipe itself is incredibly simple, but the eyes and tails are fiddly. This recipe is definitely going to become a party staple. It's only July and we're already considering how to make them into spiders for Halloween!  -  25 Jul 2010


    Great idea! I made 18 mice out of this recipe.  -  21 Jul 2008


    This was fun to make and my husband said they were tasty. One suggestion, line an old shoe box with tin foil and poke air holes in the top. Serve the mice in the box and it will look like they've been living there for awhile.  -  21 Jul 2008
