from Family Fun Magazine

These mischievous mice will have your kids happily nibbling on a healthy snack in no time.

Fresh strawberries
Mini chocolate chips
Black decorators' icing
Almond Slivers
Red lace licorice
Wedge of Cheese (your choice)

1. For each mouse, slice a small section from the side of a strawberry so it sits flat.

2. Press a mini chocolate chip into the tip for a nose, using a small dab of icing to secure it in place, if needed.

3. Add icing eyes and stick 2 almond slivers into the top of the berry for ears.

4. For a tail, use a toothpick to carve a small hole in the back of the berry and push the end of a piece of licorice lace into the hole. Serve these berry cute treats with small triangles of cheese.
