Cute Chocolate Mice

The home cookery classes continue – this time for an additional 5 year old play-date. The resulting mice are impossibly cute, and since you prepare the mixture and just get them to shape and decorate, this recipe provides a perfect fuss-free cooking activity. (Just try to stop the children eating all the decorations before they need to be used!)
