What You Need

2-1/4
cups  flour
1/2
tsp.  baking soda
2-1/2
cups  powdered sugar, divided
3/4
cup  butter
6
oz.  BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, divided
4
oz.  (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, cubed
1/4
cup  light corn syrup
2
Tbsp.  water
2/3
cup  multi-colored nonpareils (orange, red and yellow)

Make It

MIX flour, baking soda and 1-1/2 cups sugar until blended. Microwave butter and 3 oz. chocolate in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted; stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended. Add cream cheese; mix well. Gradually beat in flour mixture until blended. Refrigerate 30 min.

MEANWHILE, melt remaining chocolate as directed on package. Beat corn syrup, water and remaining sugar in medium bowl until blended. Add chocolate; mix well. Spoon into resealable plastic bag; seal bag.

HEAT oven to 375ºF. Roll dough to 1/8-inch thickness on lightly floured surface. Use 3-inch cookie cutter to cut dough into leaf shapes, re-rolling scraps as necessary. Place, 2 inches apart, on parchment-covered baking sheets.

BAKE 12 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheet 3 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.

CUT small piece off one bottom corner of icing bag; use to pipe icing onto cookies, then gently shake cookies to form even layer of icing. Sprinkle with nonpareils. Let stand until firm.
