1 package almond slices
1 package chocolate almond bark
2 jars maraschino cherries with stems
1 package milk chocolate kisses
1 tube red cake frosting
1 tube white cake frosting


Melt almond bark in microwave, stirring often.

Dip cherries in chocolate and lay on waxed paper with stem sticking out like a mouse's tail from its body.

While still wet, adhere a chocolate kiss to cherry, forming rat's head.

Using a toothpick, dab a little chocolate in two places behind head, and adhere 2 almond slices for ears.

Use frosting to make red nose and white eyes.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Easy/Quick/Rave Reviews for how cute it is.(I did not find the end product to be scarey) Would be very easy for small children to help out on also.

Placed this with the pucking pumkin along with a "trail of rats" and "rats" in the food. Placed some on gramham crakers - can make their tails to be in the trap. Use frosting to draw the trap.

My kids enjoyed this also! note: I made my eyes with white frosting- could not see this on the picures.

Thanks for the great quick recipe which will be sure to be used again-we are using it for "gross dessert" day here at work! What is more gross than "rats" in your food!
