Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Does grating chocolate grate on your nerves? An easy alternative to make the grated chocolate/icing sugar mixture is to chop the 2 oz. chocolate and add it to a blender or food processor along with the 1/2 cup icing sugar. Use pulsing action to blend 1 min. or until mixture is very fine.
Make it Easy
Use a blender or food processor to finely chop the pecans. Just be careful not to overprocess them or you'll end up with nut butter!
