Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Small Changes Add Up
Small ingredient substitutions, such as PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese and COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping, result in a savings of 30 calories and 4g of fat per serving, when compared to a traditional recipe.
Tip 2
How to Toast Nuts
Toasting nuts adds crunch and intensifies their flavor. To toast nuts in the oven, spread nuts in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. To toast nuts on the stovetop, place nuts in ungreased skillet. Cook on medium heat until golden brown, stirring frequently. To toast nuts in the microwave, place up to 1 cup of nuts in a microwaveable shallow dish. Microwave on HIGH until fragrant and crisp, stirring every 30 sec.
Tip 3
Make Ahead
Dessert can be refrigerated up to 2 days before serving.
