👩🏻‍🍳 Expert tips

  • There’s no need to whip the mixture, just beat until smooth.
  • Make sure you sit the candy bar in by hand, not with the mixer.
  • The cream cheese needs to be at room temperature or you’ll have a lumpy mixture that’s hard to blend.
  • If you want to use a stand mixer that’s fine, but a hand mixer is all you need.
