total time    2 hr 30 min
makes         14 servings, 3 wafer sandwiches each.

What You Need

1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup  cold milk
1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
1-1/2 cups  thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, divided
1 pkg. (12 oz.) NILLA Wafers
1/2 cup  mixed red, white and blue sprinkles
42 pieces red string licorice (1 inch)

Make It


BEAT cream cheese in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Gradually beat in milk. Add dry pudding mix; beat 2 min. Whisk in 1 cup COOL WHIP.
SPOON about 1-1/2 Tbsp. 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 COOL WHIP. Dip in sprinkles. Insert licorice piece in top of each for the fuse. Freeze until ready to serve
Variation
Omit sprinkles. Divide 3/4 cup BAKER'S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut into thirds. Place 2 portions in separate resealable plastic bags. Add 2 drops blue food coloring to coconut in one bag and 2 drops red food coloring to coconut in second bag. Seal bags; shake until coconut is evenly tinted. Dip tops of wafer sandwiches in remaining COOL WHIP, then dip in one of the colored coconuts. Insert licorice piece in top of each.
Note
If you have any pudding mixture left over or choose to not make all 42 wafer sandwiches, layer remaining pudding mixture in parfait glasses with fresh fruit, such as strawberries and blueberries. Top each parfait with a dollop of the remaining COOL WHIP.
