These cute little Shortbread Christmas Mice are fun for kids and adults to make during the holidays. Whip some up for this Christmas!
Aren't these shortbread Christmas mice cookies wicked adorable?
I know, right. Not only are they adorable but they taste pretty good too!
Now, don't you just want to make them right this very minute?
Don't do it man! Honestly, don't do it.
It's all an evil plot to drive you mad dog crazy at Christmas time. Yeah, they're adorable. Yes, you totally want to make them.
Okay, okay. I'll be serious now. I mean, go ahead and make them but be forewarned that they are tedious and annoying to make.
Sure, they look super cute but is it worth actually sacrificing your holiday cheer?
I mean, probably not.
But you're totally going to make them anyway, aren't you? It's all good. I understand because I honestly felt the same way when I saw them too.
Then, I learned the truth. I mean, they're totally cute but they are actually pure evil.
Now, go make these annoying cookies right now. In all honesty, I just want to hear if your experience was as brutal as mine.
Please don't come back again and yell at me. Or punch me in the throat when you see me again.
Honestly, I warned you they were going to send you over the edge. You're welcome.

Honestly, these mice are evil. And especially difficult to make.
But if you want to be foolish and throw caution to the wind, admittedly, I can't stop you.
Again, all I can do it give you the information and wish you well on your own journey to madness.
To be perfectly honest, you've been warned. So, here's the stupid recipe!
Places to stalk Cravings of a Lunatic
Shortbread Christmas Mice
- Place some waxed paper on your counter so you have a work area for the chaos about to unfold.
- Dry your cherries with a towel. Honestly people, this takes forever and a day.
- If you have bloody strength or patience left after the cherry incident from hell, you can now pop the candy melts in a microwave safe bowl. It takes about a minute to a minute and a half to melt these but check them every 15 seconds one you hit a minute. You've been warned. They go from cute and melty to hard rocks of lead quickly.
- Now if by some miracle you found cherries with stems you can use the stem to dunk them in the candy melts. If not use a spoon to swirl the cherry around in the bowl, then lift it out and transfer to a fork so most of the excess doesn't come with it. Place the covered cherries on the shortbread cookies. Then hope for the bloody best at this point.
- If you lucked out and your cherries were dry, you can now wait about 30 to 60 seconds, then pop the almonds on in a 45 degree angle so they look like ears. This will drive you to drink so have liquor handy while doing this step.
- Now take your white chocolate chips one at a time, dunk them backside really carefully in the extra melts just enough to get a sliver of melt on it, then stick the nose to the front in the middle of the almonds. Good luck, have that liquor handy once again. You'll need copious amounts of it. Ask the kids to leave the room. I can't be responsible for the words that will come out of your mouth at this stage.
- You can put a little red candy on the front for a nose. Good luck. I expect you want to punch me in the throat right about now. You're welcome.
