12 Days of Christmas Special: Chocolate Pear Mice

It twas the night before Christmas and all the through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a Chocolate Pear Mouse!

I love these little gems for the Christmas table. Kids love the fun and adults just adore the clever way to combine juice pears with delicious chocolate!!  You can't go wrong!

Chocolate Pear Mice


  • 6 firm small pears
  • Juice 1 lemon
  • 100g of chocolate buttons to melt
  • Pink marshmallows
  • Cachous (silver like sprinkle shaped balls)
  • 2 strips of flat licorice

Wash and dry pears, remove stem and bud end.  Slice in half and remove the core.  Brush with lemon juice.

Set pears flat side down on a wire rack over a tray to catch drips.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave or a bain marie until melted.

Paint or spoon melted chocolate over pears and leave to set.

Cut 12 fine strips for licorice tails.  Decorate with remaining licorice for whiskers.

Use marshmallows cut into tiny pieces for ears and coloured cachous for eyes, I like pink!

Keep i cool place or in a container in fridge.

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
