  • In the microwave or over the stove, melt the chocolate chips and shortening together. Stir until smooth.
  • Holding a cherry by its stem, dip it into the chocolate and then press a chocolate kiss onto the cherry.
  • Wedge peanut halves between the cherry and chocolate kiss to make the ears.
  • Place this on wax paper until chocolate dries.
  • Add a couple dots of white frosting for eyes, then put a little melted chocolate on a red-hot and place on the end of the kiss to make the nose.
