Last year, Bobby and I talked about soaking Maraschino cherries in Bourbon, and then dipping them in chocolate. They're not bad either.
I just did a batch that combined the two. Use cherries with the stem on, smush some of the Bourbon ball mixture around it and dip it in chocolate. If you do it right, they come out looking like mice... (I acquired this knowledge purely by accident... ) Cornflakes or almond slivers make ears, and if you really must, you can find little candy balls for a nose.
My guests really enjoyed picking them up by the tail (heathens...God Bless them... )and popping them in their mouths.
All in all a pretty big pain in the a** for a buffet, but would be great in candy gift boxes!
