1. In a small bowl, stir sugar and water together to form a thick paste.
2. Stick four licorice pieces on each side of a cookie to form the legs. If they don’t hold well, gently pull or cut the cookie apart. Place legs into cream filling then carefully press the cookie half back on. Use the sugar paste as glue to attach two M&Ms to the top of each cookie for eyes.
