Marzipan Holiday Mice
Start a new holiday tradition making these adorable treats with your little ones. The dough is fun to shape and becomes a delicious holiday gift that you and your kids made together. By adding almond ears, mini chocolate chip eyes and a licorice tail you make a little holiday magic.
- 1 1/2 c almond meal
- 1/2 c powdered sugar
- 2 T Stonyfield Organic Greek Plain Nonfat Yogurt
- Mini chocolate chips
- Red licorice
- Sliced almonds
Mix almond meal and powdered sugar together.
Slowly add the yogurt one tablespoon at a time, until it becomes a dough. (If you are not using right away, wrap into wax paper and put in an airtight container or plastic bag and refrigerate up to a week. When using, bring to room temperature. )
Pinch about a ½ tablespoon of dough. Shape into a ball. Pinch one end to make a roundish triangular shape. At the end of the triangle put a chocolate chip for the nose. On top put 2 chocolate chips on either side for the eyes and right on top 2 sliced almonds for the ears. On the end secure a piece of red licorice cut to make a tail.
These little creatures can be eaten right away or saved up to a week in an airtight container in the fridge. You can use them on your holiday cookie platter or on cakes.
