Kraft Kitchens Tips

Special Extra
Garnish with small fresh strawberries before serving.
Note
When serving adults, substitute 2 Tbsp. almond-flavored liqueur for the almond extract, if desired. Please use alcohol responsibly.
Note
If glaze becomes too thick, gradually stir in additional hot water until glaze is of desired consistency.
