COOL WHIP Whipped Topping always makes desserts better. There are so many great recipes out there that range from simple to elaborate. I can walk around the house get all kinds of ideas. Simple things like yummy hot chocolate with a dollop of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping on top.
My Mom makes a yummy recipe we call Peter Pan Pudding, it is another simple dessert but the kids love the colors, here is how you do it:
Peter Pan Pudding
Begin by layering the following in a glass 9 x 13 pan.
Butter or margarine ( make sure it is one or the other and not any of the spreads)
Melt butter and dip each graham cracker and then lay the crackers in a “glass” baking dish (9X13). Cover the whole bottom of the dish.
1 can of crushed pineapple
1 tub of COOL WHIP
2 cups of mini marsh mellows
3/4 to 1 cup of chopped walnuts (omit if allergic)
Combine all ingredients together by gently folding together. When these are all combined gently put on top of your graham crackers. Spread on the crackers to form a seal with this mixture an the inner edge of the glass pan. Cover and set in the fridge to cool and set.
1 pkg jell-o (any flavor) large package, fix according to the quick set directions.
I always put the hot (very) water and mix till it’s dissolved and add a mess of ice cubes till it gets really thick. Take the remaining ice cubes out and pour this on top of your 2nd layer. This is where you’ll figure out if you made the seal good enough. It’s not really a big deal, if the seal isn’t good enough or the Jello isn’t thick enough you’ll just have your third layer first..
Leave in the fridge until you just can’t wait any longer (about 4-5 hours).
How about another recipe I have been promising? I’d like to show you a picture of a whole cake, but it never lasts.
I call this cake, Hawaiian Fluff Cake
Here is the recipe for a layered cake:
2 boxes of White Cake Mix
Medium Can of Mandarin Oranges
Large can of Crushed Pineapple
2 Large tubs of COOL WHIP
1 Large Box of Jello Vanilla Pudding
Follow the instructions on the cake box, but add the half (drained) can of Mandarin oranges per batch.
Bake like normal.
While the cakes are baking:
In a large bowl mix Vanilla Pudding and the can of Pineapple, juices and all.
Add one tube of COOL WHIP and fold till almost blended than add the other tub of COOL WHIP and fold gently until completely blended.
When both cakes are VERY cooled, frost the top of the first cake generously and place 2nd layer on top of it and complete frosting process generously.
Place in refrigerator and let chill before serving (at least an hour.)
There should be some frosting left over. My kids like to nibble on it, but it would be a great topper on some jello or pound cake!
Here is one more easy recipe…
Add a square of unsweetened melted chocolate to 3 cups of COOL WHIP and fold together gently. It will slowly but surely turn a light shade of brown.
Add it to a pretty cup and put COOL WHIP on top.
That was simple wasn’t it.
