1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon orange juice
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Orange food coloring, optional
1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 9-ounce package chocolate wafer cookies
Tubes of decorative writing gel; green, orange, red, white for garnish
Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, orange juice and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl until thoroughly combined. Add food coloring until desired color is achieved. Using a rubber scraper, gently mix whipped topping and dried cranberries into cream cheese mixture.
Arrange half the cookies, rounded side down on a large tray. Top each cookie with 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture. Cover each with remaining plain cookies and freeze overnight. Decorate with writing gel to make spider webs and spooky faces. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
