Mr Men Cookbook: Week 12 Mr Forgetful's Chocolate Mice on Chopped Jelly

A bit late with this week's recipe from the Men Cookbook as we had a packed weekend! This evening has seen us speedily whip up a plate of Mr Forgetful's Chocolate Mice on Chopped Jelly.

We already made some raspberry jelly up ready yesterday, so Squidge just chopped it up in the bowl today. 

We peeled, cored and halved three pears and placed them rounded side up on a large plate. We then put 1oz of margarine, 1oz of cocoa, 2oz of sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla extract in a pan and heated it slowly until it made a chocolate sauce, which we then spooned over the halved pears as instructed. Not quite as pretty as the illustration suggested! The neater ones are Squidge's, the big blobs of mousey horror, mine...

The recipe called for flaked almonds for ears, but for the life of me I couldn't find them so we substituted halved candy melts. Squidge then arranged the chopped jelly around our little murine friends...

And the verdict? Well it tastes as good as it looks, ie terrible ;)

Next week, Mr Noisy's Peppermint Creams!
