Hi, I'm Colleen from the Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchen staff. The 3-ounce package of cream cheese is correct, however it is getting harder to find this size package. Luckily the 8-ounce packages have ounce-markings on the foil so you can cut off what you need. Enjoy!

Is the cream cheese supposed to be an 8 oz package instead of 3?

I made this and it tasted so amazingly rich and delicious. I even gave some away as gifts to my boss and co workers. It really is rich, and I made two batches, one with the liquor and one without; I liked the one without better and I also omitted the mini chocolate pieces. Still very delicious. I cannot wait to make it this year!!!!!
