In a small saucepan bring whipping cream just to boiling over medium-high heat. Remove from heat and pour over chocolate mixture (do not stir). Let stand 5 minutes. Whisk until mixture is smooth. Let mixture stand at room temperature for 1 hour or until it has thickened to the consistency of a thick chocolate frosting. Line two baking sheets with parchment or waxed paper; set aside. Spoon chocolate mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip. Pipe mixture into quarter-size mounds on the prepared baking sheets, lifting the tip at an angle to create a pointy nose. Before chocolate has set, add 2 almond slices for ears, a 2- to 3-inch piece of shoestring licorice for the tail and nonpareils for the eyes. Chill at least 1 hour or until ready to serve. To Store: Place mice in a single layer in an airtight container; cover. Store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
