4 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
1/3 cup sour cream
1 cup chocolate wafers, finely crushed
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
24 silver dragees (small silver, edible balls for eyes)
1/4 cup sliced almonds
12 licorice strings (for tails)
Melt the chocolate, and combine with sour cream. Stir in 1 cup chocolate wafer crumbs. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate until firm.
Roll by level tablespoonfuls into balls. Mold to a slight point at one end (the nose).
Roll dough in confectioners sugar (for white mice), or in chocolate wafer crumbs (for dark mice). On each mouse, place dragees in appropriate spot for eyes, almond slices for ears, and a licorice string for the tail.
Refrigerate for at least two hours until firm.
