Kraft Kitchens Tips

Substitute: Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.

Note: For best results, refrigerate the cooled dessert before cutting into bars. Keep bars refrigerated.

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.
