Use your cookie cutter to cut out your egg shapes, then roll out your fondant and use your heart shaped cutter to cut out several hearts from the pink and red fondant (2 pink and 1 red for each mouse).

Stick on a upside down red heart for the nose on the point of the egg.

Draw two black eyes above the nose with your black gel icing.

Then place two hearts above the eyes for the ears and carefully press them down on the Rice Krispies so they stick.

Now roll out several (one for each mouse) dime sized pieces of fondant into skinny snakes and press the end of each one onto the bottom back of each mouse for their tails.
