Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Size Wise
Since this dessert makes 24 servings, it's a great treat to serve a crowd.
Make it Easy
To make cleanup and serving of the bars easier, line empty pan with foil or parchment paper, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan. Then use to prepare dessert as directed. When ready to serve, use the foil handles to remove the chilled dessert from the pan before cutting into bars.
