3 packs of Philadelphia cream cheese - Regular Block version - NOT tub or whipped.
1 package Nestle Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts and/or pecans (use more or less as required)
1 box each vanilla and chocolate wafers
3 oz Crème De Menthe (or 1 TBS peppermint flavoring) if desired
3 oz Orange Liquor (if desired)
1 cup Powdered Sugar if desired
3 large mixing bowls – one should be a Tupperware like plastic bowl
Double Boiler or microwave safe container
1 large round plastic serving tray
Wax paper

This takes an overnight setup. Need a large flat workspace to put this together.
Day Before:
Soften Cream Cheese overnight at room temperature. Melt together chocolate chips and any additional flavorings or other chips as above. Recommend use of double boiler as to
not scorch, but you can use a microwave if you are good. Beat chocolate mixture into softened cream cheese. Put mixture into Large Tupperware bowl-like container. Put mixture into refrigerator so it sets up/firms up overnight.
Day Of (or can prepare ahead of time):
Crush nuts into small pieces. Put nuts into a large mixing bowl. Spread powdered sugar (if using) into a second large mixing bowl.
Remove cream cheese mixture from Tupperware bowl and roll into a large sticky ball.
Roll ball in Powdered sugar to cover ball.
Roll ball in nuts to cover, press remaining nuts into mixture. Place wax paper over serving tray.
Place “cheeseball” on wax paper.
Return to refrigerator to set up one more time. Leave cool until serving time.
Remove ball from refridgerator.
Place cookies around serving tray.

There are some variations to this, you can roll in crushed candy
cane instead of nuts, you can add some peanut butter or
butterscotch chips in the chocolate, etc.
