This is a quick treat that kids and adults can assemble at the last minute. To achieve the best bat-like wings, break (rather than cut) the cookies in half to create a ragged edge. You need exactly one package of chocolate wafer cookies, so check closely at the grocery store to make sure none of them are broken.
- Portion size 16 servings

- 1/4 cup cream cheese softened
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
- 1 1/2 cup icing sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 48 chocolate wafer cookies
- 16 candy eyeballs (such as Wilton)
In bowl, beat cream cheese with butter until fluffy; beat in icing sugar and vanilla until smooth. Remove 1 tbsp and set aside.
Break 16 of the cookies in half to make wings; set aside.
Spread about 1 tbsp of the icing onto flat side of each of half of the remaining cookies; sandwich with remaining cookies. Insert 2 wings, rounded sides up, into icing on either side of each sandwich.
Dab some of the reserved icing onto back of each eyeball; press 1 large and 1 small eyeball onto each cookie.
Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 3 days.
