A trillion years ago when I was a wee tot I had a mug with a little mouse in it who would pop his head out to say hello when I was about half done with my cocoa. I'm glad to see that there is a classy adult version now that I'm an ancient lady.
I love a good culinary "gotcha" every now and again. This one is especially well executed with the matching saucer and the doily and the little floating marshmallows. I know I'd be fooled and delighted!
I love the idea of crispy cookies on top of a steamy cup of apple cider. The steam will soften up the bottom of the cookie just enough to make it chewy, but the top will still be crispy. Mmmmmmm... hurry up, Autumn!
