Heritage Recipe

Traditional Christmas Mice

A strange name for a chocolate treat that tastes great. Grandma Glasgow prepared these treats for her 4 children. She lived well into her nineties and always had a love for chocolate. This trait has been passed on to her grandchildren---Randy especially. Randy's mom, Jean, always prepared these for her 5 children in her Christmas tray. Let these treats become a part of your special Christmas memories.

Ingredients
1 cup icing sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 Tablespoon butter
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 cup finely chopped dates
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix and squeeze in little rolls. Stand and freeze overnight on greased cookie sheets.

Coating: Melt 1/2 pound (omit 2 squares) semi-sweet chocolate and 1 square bitter or unsweetened chocolate together with 1/3 slab of paraffin wax in double boiler. (Use just a small amount or chocolate will have a waxy taste). Dip rolls in mixture and place on cookie sheet and freeze. Add two peanut halves to resemble ears. (optional: or add a small piece of licorice for tail.

Cooking tips: Use large sewing needle to insert roll into chocolate mixture.
