    Rita~'s Note:

    Pears made into cute little mice! * A quick pear dessert - In general, a typical Australian dish is a typical British dish, which is to say a typical European or American dish with most of the subtleties of flavour (and difficulty in making) removed. The following dessert is a genuine Old Family Favorite in Australia. * Candied angelica is almost impossible to find in North America. Anything else with the appropriate properties of sweetness and shape may be substituted, e.g. a piece of chocolate or candy cut to size, such as an Ovation mint divided longitudinally or shoestring candy.You can also add the shoestring for whiskers.

      Okay Rita, where in the heck did you find these MICE recipes? They are AWESOME!!!! I had so much fun making them and I'm sure DD's class is having just as much fun eating them. The teacher in my DD's class thought they were the cutest things ever! When I showed my daughter last night, she said, "Mice, they're cute." Mind you, she's 2. Anyway, the recipe was super easy to make. Even easier than your other MICE recipe - LOL. I loved the simplicity of this recipe very much. The only thing, I would like to find something for the tail that curls. I got lucky with finding a flesh colored licorice, but it stuck straight out. I guess if push comes to shove next time and the only thing I can find for the tail is a black rope licorice, then I can always pat the pears dry and dip them in chocolate. Ooooh, that sounds really good - I have left over chocolate from the "other" mice so maybe I'll make some tonight for tomorrow's play group! The ears and tail are the butterscotch licorice cut to shape. The eyes are black licorice cut into tiny bits and pushed into the pear. I also made Rita's other Mice recipe to accompany these critters. Today was my DDss end of summer party at daycare. In the pictures that I posted, the three large mice represent the teachers and the little brown mice represent the 16 kids in DD's class. Thanks for such a fun, easy and delicious recipe! If I make the chocolate covered pears tonight, I'll be sure to take a pic and post them here!

      Very cute. I made the ears out of marshmallows and tails out of carrots to use what I had. A hit at our annual Christmas cookie party Thanks!

      I didn't have angelica, so I used some dried pineapple. Used craisins for the eyes and nose, and licorice for the whiskers and tail. Been doing these for quite a while, never thought of them as Australian. Thanks for the fun and memories Rita! Made for ZWT8 trip to Australia/New Zealand.
