  • Beat Neufchatel cheese in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Add melted chocolate and sugar; mix well. Gently stir in whipped topping. Remove 1 Tbsp. of the Neufchatel cheese mixture for later use; spread small amount of the remaining cream cheese mixture between each of 16 of the cookies to form two logs of 8 cookies each.
  • Place logs, side-by-side, on serving platter for the "hedgehog's body." Add remaining 2 cookies to one end for the "face" as shown in photo. Spread face and body with remaining Neufchatel ixture until completely covered.
  • Cut each apricot to resemble a foot with claws; attach to the body with the reserved Neufchatel cheese mixture. Press chocolate triangles into the "body" to resemble quills. Decorate with white chocolate chips for the "eyes," jelly bean for the "nose" and licorice for the "whiskers." Store in refrigerator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the best-ever choc fudge layer cake is amazing. the best-ever choc fudge layer cake is amazing. it was good the first day. i was even better the next day - all cold and the frosting had a mouth-watering consistency. i used it for a birthday party and just picked up more ingredients to make again for no special reason, except for the fact that the entire family gave it rave reviews! five stars on this one.
