  • 1 pkg. (250 g) brick light cream cheese, softened
  • 6 oz. semi-sweet baking chocolate, broken into pieces, melted
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1-1/4 cups thawed Cool Whip Light Whipped Topping
  • 18 Chips Ahoy! Original Cookies, divided
  • 2 bars (100 g each) Toblerone Swiss Milk Chocolate, broken into triangles

Remove 1 Tbsp. of the cream cheese mixture for later use; spread small amount of the remaining cream cheese mixture between each of 16 of the cookies to form 2 logs of 8 cookies each.

  • Cut  each apricot to resemble a foot with claws; attach to the body with the reserved cream cheese mixture. Press chocolate triangles into the "body" to resemble quills.
