- Adjust oven racks to upper and lower third of oven. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 2 large baking sheets with cooking spray.
- Stir together cake mix, melted butter and eggs in large bowl until well blended. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto baking sheet to make 30 dough balls. Pour sprinkles into a small bowl. Dip top of 12 dough balls in sprinkles and return to baking sheet.
- Bake cookies 9 to 11 minutes, until centers are set, rotating pans about halfway through baking. Cool on pans 1 minutes. Remove from pans to wire rack to cool completely.
- Set aside 1/2-cup chocolate frosting. Spread remaining frosting on flat side of sprinkle cookies. Create cookie sandwiches with one sprinkle cookie and one undecorated cookie.
- CAKE BATTER DIP: Place remaining cookies, reserved 1/2-cup frosting and cream cheese in food processor and process until smooth. Scrape dip into a bowl. Tear 4 PEEPS® Marshmallow Ghosts into small pieces and fold into dip.
- Place PEEPS® Marshmallow Ghosts and Monsters on pretzel sticks. Break pretzel rods so they are 2 different lengths. Scoop cake batter dip evenly into 12 small jars. Insert PEEPS® pretzel sticks and pretzel rods into dip. Rest a sandwich cookie on top of each jar. Fill in spaces with lollipops and licorice. Serve dessert jarcuterie immediately.
