Not a creature was stirring

Not even a (chocolate) mouse!
It's hard to say no to these L.A. Burdick sweeties :)
And if chocolate's not a good enough reason, just look at those little faces and satiny tails!

"Strength is the ability to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands - and then eat just one of those pieces." - Writer Judith Viorst

P.S. The dark chocolate mice have an orange interior, the milk chocolate ones a mocha interior, and the white chocolate ones a cinnamon interior - yum! (And their ears are almonds.)

They are so cute! It is almost heartbreaking to eat them... but someone has got to do it!
I bet the darkest ones are the best, because I'm a huge fan of black bitter chocolate.

Whenever chocolate-loving friends come to visit me, we always have to take a trip to Burdick's in Harvard Square! Usually for the hot chocolate, though- I always forget about the mice.
