Martha Washington Mounds

I made some of these yesterday & they are the bomb! If you love cream cheese, these are for you. Have mercy these are delightful!

1 stick oleo, room temperature
2 (1 pound) boxes powdered sugar
1 can Eagle brand milk
2 cups chopped nuts (optional)
1 cup flaked coconut
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 small package (3 ounces) cream cheese

Mix ingredients in large bowl until well blended. Put in refrigerator for about 1 hour. I do it overnight. Then roll a teaspoon at a time into little balls (the size of a walnut). Place on waxed paper on a cookie sheet or flat pan. Put a tooth pick in each ball & keep refrigerated until ready to dip in chocolate. I found that freezing works better. CHOCOLATE DIP: Melt 1/2 small cake paraffin in double boiler. Add 1 large package chocolate chips. Blend until smooth and keep over hot water while dipping. Place dipped chocolate back on waxed paper. After finished put a small amount on top of chocolate to cover toothpick hole.
