Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
*IF MASCARPONE CHEESE IS UNAVAILABLE, YOU MAY SUBSTITUTE 2-8OZ PACKAGES OF CREAM CHEESE, SOFTENED, AND DELETE SALT. MIX CREAM CHEESE WITH 3 TABLESPOONS OF MILK UNTIL SMOOTH AND FLUFFY. INCREASE CONFECTIONERS' SUGAR TO 2/3 CUP AND BEAT IN WITH COFFEE-FLAVOR LIQUEUR AND VANILLA EXTRACT. STIR IN GRATED CHOCOLATE.

**I USE RUM-PICK YOUR FAVORITE KIND.
