Reindeer Poop, Snowman Kisses & Chocolate Cherry Mice

My last minute goodies for kids, friends, teachers, co-workers and we can't forget our oh so loved postman and the UPS drivers, after all they bring us packages all year!!!!! What simple gifts to let them know you are thinking of them. First up is the reindeer poop, just some chocolate covered raisins with printed labels attached. For the snowman kisses I used white chocolate chips with peppermint chocolate baking chips with labels. Pretty simple and fun. Next up is the Chocolate Cherry mice, these are too cute and so yummy. First I might add don't tell hubby it pick you up a few cherries and make sure they have stems or you just might end up with too many. Be a little more specific then I was, LOL. Here's what you need to make these .
1 bag chocolate chips, melted
1bag of white chips, but you only need a few for the tip of the nose so the extra are for the snowman kisses, melted and add the food color, which is the next ingredient.
Red food color to go in the white chips.
Almond slivers for the ears.
And of course just a small jar maybe 2 of maraschino cherries with stems which become the tail.
1 bag of coconut for the snow.
Now you can either make boxes out of card stock, scrap booking paper(there is a tutorial on Youtube) or you use tins or just what ever you can think up for packaging.
I'll add a pic of the labels I printed to use, I'm going to add ribbon around the top of the tin and attach the label to the ribbon.
