  2. Melt cream cheese over low heat until creamy.
  3. Add powdered sugar, vanilla and nuts; mix very well.
  4. Put in fridge until set.

How easy is this? Put these on my Christmas candy tray. They were great. I also used 4 cups of powdered sugar but in my case I could have used just a little extra because it came out just a little soft. I will be making these again. Thanks.

This is a great candy and it doesn't get any easier than this. I followed Vote For Pedro's advise and used 4 cups of powdered sugar. This is very similar to the candy a friend makes. Thanks for sharing. vlynn.

I wasn't sure as the the proper amount for a box of powdered sugar, but used 4 cups. This made a really good candy with a texture similar to fudge. I think that it would be an excellent accompaniment to fudge of a sweet tray. Will add it to my Christmas list of goodies.
