Three Rice Mice Recipe

Three Rice Mice Recipe

Tell your kids it's time to make these tiny rice critters and see how they run to the kitchen.


  • Cooked rice (leftover works great)
  • Cream cheese
  • Plain yogurt (or use 1 teaspoon whipped cream cheese instead of the cream cheese and yogurt combo)
  • Salt to taste
  • Green peas (eyes)
  • Corn niblets (nose)
  • Chive or cheese-stick (tail)


  1. With slightly dampened hands, roll the mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls. Now add the features: green-pea eyes, corn-niblet noses, chive or cheese-stick tails.
  2. For ears? Try olives, cheese, radishes or anything that, well, sounds good.
