M Is for Mice Munchies

Snacks that start with M - Mice Munchies

These sweet little Mice Munchies just might be too cute to eat.

Preschoolers aren’t always interested in eating healthy snacks, but with their chocolate chip eyes and red licorice tails, these fruit and cheese mice may be difficult for your little one to resist!

But beware! After you’re done creating this fun snack, you might have to abandon the “don’t play with your food” rule. These adorable and edible vermin are just begging to be played with.

And be sure to check out all the snacks in my ABC Snacks Series. Our snack series has more than fifty alphabet-inspired snacks for you to enjoy with your preschooler.

Here’s what you’ll need to make three mice munchies:

  • 3 large fresh strawberries
  • 9 miniature chocolate chips
  • 6 almond slivers
  • 3 red licorice strings
  • 1 ounce cheese, any variety, cut into triangle shapes


  1. Slice a sliver off the side of each strawberry so they will sit flat on a plate.
  2. Press one chocolate chip nose into each strawberry.
  3. Press two chocolate chip eyes into each strawberry.
  4. Insert two slivered or sliced almond ears into each strawberry.
  5. Arrange strawberries on a plate. Place one licorice string tail behind each mouse.
  6. Arrange cheese shapes around the plate—after all, your mice deserve a snack, too!
