  • Pipe small amount of semi-sweet chocolate into spiral design on wafers; refrigerate until ready to use. Beat Neufchatel and butter in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add remaining melted chocolate; mix well. Gradually beat in sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat pudding mix and milk in medium bowl with whisk 2 min. Stir in COOL WHIP. Spread 1 rounded Tbsp. pudding mixture onto 1 graham square; cover with second graham square. Spread top with 1 rounded Tbsp. pudding mixture. Repeat with remaining graham squares and pudding mixture to form 12-inch loaf. Stand on edge on platter; frost with Neufchatel mixture to resemble log.
  • Run tines of fork over dessert to resemble tree bark. Refrigerate overnight. Meanwhile, make curls from white chocolate. (See Tip.) Refrigerate until ready to use. Decorate with wafers, chocolate curls and raspberries. Cut into diagonal slices to serve.

How to Make Chocolate Curls

Warm chocolate slightly by heating it in the microwave for a few seconds until you can just smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold the chocolate steadily between your thumb and fingers of one hand and draw a vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of chocolate piece. Allow a thin layer of chocolate to curl as it is peeled off the bottom. This will make long delicate curls. To make short curls, use the same technique on the narrow sides of the chocolate piece. To arrange curls on a dessert, use a toothpick to lift them into place.

Small Changes Add Up

Small ingredient substitutions, such as PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Sugar Free Fat Free Instant Pudding, COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping, and low-fat graham crackers, result in a savings of 40 calories per serving when compared to a traditional recipe.
