For the mice

  • 200g Milk chocolate

The Method

  1. You will need a silicone mice mould for this recipe.

  2. Melt 100g of the chocolate and using a teaspoon, coat the inside of the moulds making sure that all of the tiny areas are covered i.e ears.

  3. Place the moulds in the fridge to set for 15-20 minutes.

  4. Place the nutella in a medium bowl and in a small saucepan bring the cream to a boil.

  5. Pour the warm cream over the Nutella and stir the mixture until it becomes glossy.
