Expert Tips

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the original.

To quickly soften the cream cheese, remove wrapper and place in microwavable bowl. Microwave on High for 10 to 15 seconds.

Miniature chocolate chips are a great substitute for regular chips. Because they're so small, you can use less but have just as much chocolate flavor.

For mocha brownies, stir in 1 teaspoon instant espresso or coffee granules with the brownie mix.
