Prep Time1 min

Ingredients

Mice body

Additional ingredients

  • 12 pumpkin seeds, refer notes
  • 12 white sesame seeds
  • 6 (or more if required) pretzel twists (use gluten free for gluten-free option)

Instructions

Make mice body,

  • Add almond butter, maple syrup and chocolate chips into a medium microwave safe bowl. Melt for about 45 seconds or very hot. Remove from microwave and stir well, until it becomes a smooth mixture. 
  • Add almond flour, cocoa powder and salt. Stir well to make a make a smooth dough (use hands to finish shaping the dough smooth). 
    Dough should be soft yet slightly firm. 
    If it feels too soft to shape, then add about 1/2 tablespoon (or more if required) additional almond flour and knead again. 
    If it feels too firm to shape without cracks, then add couple of drops of water (or more if required) and knead again. 
  • Divide dough into 6 portions.
    Working with one portion at a time, shape into a smooth ball. Form the ball into a oblong shape and then make one end pointed to form a mouse (refer pictures)

Finish mice

  • Break pretzels gently to get curved pieces (refer pictures). I was able to get one tail piece from each pretzel.
  • Insert a pretzel into the rounded end of each mouse to form the tail.
  • Have a small bowl with about 1 teaspoon of water and a paper or kitchen towel handy. 
  • Dip the tip of your finger in water to dampen (not dripping wet - gently blot off excess in a paper or kitchen towel). 
    Dampen the eye area (refer pictures) with the wet fingertip and then using the same finger gently place two sesame seeds on the dampened area (this will help it stick as it dries).  The sesame seeds will stick to your damp fingertips and help in transferring to the mice very easy. 
    Similarly, wet two pumpkin seeds and blot excess water on the paper or kitchen towel. Insert dampened pumpkin seeds into the ear area (refer pictures). 
  • Let brownie mice rest at room temperture for several hours or overnight to firm up. 

Notes

  1. Sliced almonds can be used instead of pumpkin seeds
     2. The dough should be soft yet slightly firm
      -If it feels too soft to shape, then add about 1/2 tablespoon (or more) additional almond flour and knead again. 
     -If it feels too firm to shape without cracks, then add couple of drops of water and knead again. 
    3. If you do prefer to have it less chocolatey, then decrease the cocoa powder to about 2 1/2 tablespoons and increase almond flour accordingly. 
    4. Measure maple syrup and almond butter in a dry measuring cup ( and not a liquid measure), to ensure that the measurements are precise.
