Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To keep candies from sticking together as you cut them, sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar over the cutting board. As you cut the candies, toss them with the sugar.
  • tip 2
    Vanilla or chocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix can be used instead of the white chocolate pudding mix.
