1. Melt cheese and butter together over medium heat in saucepan.
2. Remove from heat, add vanilla and nuts.
3. Sift together sugar and cocoa in large bowl. Add cheese mixture. Use hands for final mixing!
4. Remove candy from bowl with hands and roll into balls. Add skewers.
5. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and enjoy!

Wow Karen, where did you find that recipe? That sounds decadent. I'm going to have to make it!

I love Paula Deen's recipes. I've made several of her dishes including the Turkey Pot Pie. It is too good. :taz:
