* 2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs (about 40 wafers), divided
* 1/3 cup sour cream
* 36 red nonpareils
* 1/4 cup sliced almonds
* 18 pieces black shoestring licorice (2 inches each)
* In a microwave, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Stir in 1 cup crumbs and sour cream. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
