Description

This icing is so easy and good that you will want to make it all the time. So whip it! Whip it good!

Ingredients

  • 1 container Cool Whip Topping (8 Oz)
  • 1 box Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix (small Box)
  • ¼ cups Confectioners Sugar
  • 1 cup Milk

Preparation

Mix all ingredients together. Please note: You do not make the pudding; you just dump the powder in with all the other ingredients!

After you have it all mixed up, place on the cooled cakes or cupcakes. Store in the fridge overnight or until you are ready to serve. Because the icing can be kinda runny it is best to let your cake or cupcakes sit in the fridge for awhile to allow the icing to become stiff.

You can add whatever flavor pudding mix you want to change it up a bit. For these particular ones pictured, I used the Devil’s Food pudding mix, Devil’s food cupcakes from a box and made chocolate shavings to go on top. This recipe will cover a whole cake or about 36 cupcakes.

This makes for a great alternative to regular icing as a nice cold treat. So go on, make this recipe now, and whip it. Whip it good.

I’ve also seen this recipe using a 4 oz package of pudding and no powdered sugar. If you use the 3.5 oz package, that’s when you need the powdered sugar.

This icing was wonderful. But we used it as the filling for a double layer cake. Then I iced the cake with Ree’s sticky choc. frosting she used for her cupcakes. It was great!

I have long used this recipe for making a frosting that is just a bit different than the norm (and WAY more delicious).

If you want an amazing experience, bake a Devil’s Food cake mix, create a raspberry glaze with fresh berries and jam to smother between the layers, then frost with this icing made with White Chocolate pudding, and then drizzle more of the raspberry glaze on top. Seriously! It’s wonderful and very very easy for a “fancy” dessert!
