   NOTES:
   
   *  Easy-to-make candies with chocolate and cream cheese -- Here’s a good
   recipe for lazy chocolate freaks.  They're not as good as the ones you buy
   in good candy stores, but they're still yummy.
   
   *  If you're adventurous, try substituting the liqueur of your choice for
   the vanilla.
   
   : Difficulty:  easy.
   : Time:  30 minutes preparation, 2 hours chilling, 20 minutes rolling.
   : Precision:  measure the ingredients.
