I love cool whip frosting, not as sweet as the traditional frosting.
- 1 cup milk
- 1 (3 1/2 ounce) package instant pudding mix, any flavor
- 1⁄4 cup powdered sugar
- 8 ounces Cool Whip
- Pour milk into bowl add pudding mix and sugar.
- Beat with wire whisk for 2 minutes.
- Gently fold in whipped topping.
Outstanding frosting, and so easy to make! I used a box of Jell-O vanilla, sugar free, pudding with one cup of milk, and an 8 oz container of extra creamy cool whip (I omitted the frosting sugar because I didn't want it too sweet). I made a Black Forest cake with a chocolate, gluten free, bunt cake generously frosted with the cool whip frosting, and added cherry pie filling in the middle to fill in the hole. The cake had rave reviews and everyone agreed that the creamy delicious frosting was the best! I'm already planning how to use it the next time since you can flavor the frosting with any of the pudding flavors (cheese cake, chocolate, pistachio, banana, etc...). So delicious and light!
This is an excellent frosting recipe!!! Very light. I used Cheesecake pudding and frosted a spice cake. EXCELLENT flavor. Just the type of frosting I like, but could never find the recipe until now.
I have kids that don't eat cake because they don't like frosting, but they love this one! I've made it several times due to their requests. I like to make chocolate and vanilla frosting, cut the cake in half, use chocolate in the middle, and the white vanilla frosting for decorating. Even this way it's still not too sweet!
