Kraft Kitchen Tips!
How to Easily Press the Crumb Mixture Onto Bottom of Pan
Use bottom of dry measuring cup to press the crumb mixture onto bottom of prepared pan.
Instead of freezing the dessert for 2 hours, you can refrigerate it up to 6 hours before serving.
This irresistible dessert can be frozen up to 2 weeks before serving. Remove from freezer and let stand at room temperature 20 min. before serving. Refrigerate any leftovers.
How to Fold
Use a folding technique to incorporate light airy ingredients, such as thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping, beaten egg whites or whipped cream, into heavier mixtures, such as thickened Jell-O Pudding or prepared cake batter. Start by stirring a small amount of the lighter mixture into the heavier mixture to thin it slightly. Then, blend the remaining two mixtures by using a rubber spatula to gently cut down vertically into both mixtures, then scraping the spatula across the bottom of the bowl and up the side to fully incorporate the two mixtures, rotating the bowl as you go.
Enjoy a serving of this rich and indulgent treat on special occasions.
