Firecracker Bites

Firecracker Bites

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup cold milk
1 package (3.4 ounces) vanilla flavor instant pudding
1-1/2 cups thawed whipped topping, divided
1 package (12 ounces) vanilla wafers
1/2 cup mixed red, white and blue sprinkles
42 pieces red string licorice (1 inch)

Beat cream cheese in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Gradually beat in milk. Add dry pudding mix; beat 2 minutes. Whisk in 1 cup whipped topping.

Spoon about 1-1/2 tablespoons pudding mixture onto each of half the wafers; cover with remaining wafers to make sandwiches. Freeze 2 hours or until filling is firm.

Spread tops of wafer sandwiches with remaining whipped topping. Dip in sprinkles. Insert licorice piece in top of each for the fuse. Freeze until ready to serve.

*These are especially fun to make, but on a hot day will thaw quickly. However, they usually go fast so that is not a problem. Just make sure you have plenty of freezer space available since they take up alot of room.
