Let's Make It

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.

Kitchen Tips
Size Wise
Sweets can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.
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.
Substitute
Use 1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) JELL-O SIMPLY GOOD Vanilla Bean Flavor Pudding.
