Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The fun part of Harper’s Surprise is to add whatever toppings you like. Chopped nuts, coconut, toffee bits, mini chips, and candy sprinkles—anything that sounds good to you.
  • tip 2
    Keep Harper’s Surprise in the refrigerator. You don’t want the chocolate to melt.
