Kraft Kitchens Tips

Healthy Living
Save 60 calories, 6 grams of fat and 4 grams of saturated fat per serving by preparing with Reduced Fat NILLA Wafers, PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, BREAKSTONE'S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN Light Sour Cream, JELL-O Lemon Flavor Fat Free Sugar Free Instant Pudding and COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping.

Special Extra
Top dessert with white chocolate curls. Melt 1 square BAKER'S White Chocolate as directed on package. Spread into very thin layer on baking sheet. Refrigerate 10 min. or until chocolate is firm, but still pliable. To make curls, push a metal spatula firmly under chocolate to make curls. (If chocolate is too firm, let stand a few minutes at room temperature; refrigerate again if it becomes too soft.) Use toothpick to carefully place chocolate curls on waxed paper-covered tray. Refrigerate 15 min. or until firm. Use toothpick to arrange curls on dessert just before serving.
