DIY Easy Chocolate Cherry Mice Recipe and Tutorial from Happy Hour Projects here. Beyond easy. Posting because this is better than giving my mom a cheap box of chocolate cherries like I do every year. I’m wondering if you can use the cheap candy melt chips from Wilton.

I have now done these with Wilton melts and Candiquik, and while both are workable, I’d recommend the Candiquik. Wilton melts don’t get quite as liquid, and it’s harder to get the cherry smoothly coated, although you do get less of a puddle around the cherry on the waxed paper for the same reason, and also it’s not quite the same color as Hershey’s Kisses — the regular cocoa flavor is lighter, and the dark is darker, whereas Candiquik chocolate flavor matches very nicely. Candiquik just gives you a prettier result all around, I think, so it’s worth getting it, unless you’re just trying to use up some Wilton’s that you’ve already got on hand.
