Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size Wise
Sweets can add enjoyment to a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions.
Great Substitutes
Substitute club soda for the ginger ale, 2 pkg. (4-serving size each) JELL-O Sparkling Mandarin Orange Flavor Gelatin for the 1 pkg. (8-serving size) gelatin and strawberry halves, blueberries, raspberries and/or mandarin oranges for the grape halves.
How to Soften Cream Cheese
Place completely unwrapped package of cream cheese in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 10 sec. or just until softened. Add 15 sec. for each additional package of cream cheese.
