NOTES:

* A no-bake chocolate cake -- This is a very simple, quick, no-bake cake
for those of us who hate getting near an oven, but like delightful cheese
cakes. This recipe is originally from the _Yediot Achronot_ (Latest News)
newspaper supplement here in Israel. It should be prepared a day or two
before you intend to eat it, so that the flavoring fills out. Definitely
not for people on a diet. Yield: Serves 6-8.

* You can replace the milk and cream with about 1 1/2 lb of 9 percent milk
fat cheese. This is a product sold in Israel. The nearest equivalent in
North America is sour cream. If you do this, replace the pudding with about
1/2 cup of chocolate syrup. If you are not a chocolate lover, you may
replace the chocolate pudding with vanilla pudding (or with vanilla extract
if you are using the 9 percent cheese)

: Difficulty: easy.
: Time: 10 minutes preparation, several hours chilling.
: Precision: measure the ingredients.
