Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size-Wise: Enjoy your favorite foods on occasion but remember to keep tabs on portions.

Note from the Kraft Kitchens: Thank you. We heard your feedback and retested this recipe. We discovered that cake mix package sizes have been reduced since we developed this recipe. We have updated the recipe to add 1/4 cup milk to the cake batter to improve the consistency of the batter. Thank you for your input.

How to Make Chocolate Curls: Microwave chocolate on HIGH a few seconds to warm it slightly. Draw vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of each chocolate piece to form thin curls.
