• DIY: COOL WHIP Marshmallows

    Thank you  COOL WHIP for sponsoring this post.
    Homemade marshmallows are messy and difficult to make, but here’s a version usingCOOL Whip Whipped Topping that is super simple, delicious, and ready for your spontaneous hot chocolate parties in no time.

    Keep reading to see the full tutorial…

    1 container of COOL WHIP
    1/2 cup of water
    Large mixing bowl
    Wax paper
    Mini cookie cutter (I used a star shape)

    Step 1: Pour the COOL WHIP into a mixing bowl and add the 1/2 cup of water. Adding the water is necessary so it freezes well enough to cut out pieces that hold their shape.

    Step 2: Mix well with a spoon until the water is incorporated evenly into the COOL WHIP.

    Step 3: Line tray with wax paper. Pour the mixture into the tray (you’d like it ideally about 1/2 inch thick or more) and freeze at least 4 hours

    Step 4. Lift wax paper out of sheet and place on a table.

    Step 5: Cut out shapes with your cookie cutter and place layers of the mini marshmallows between sheets of wax paper in a freezable container.

    Step 6: Store in the freezer and pull out individual marshmallows as needed for fancy hot chocolate!

      Do they melt if you leave them out for a while? Or do they dry? Can they be used at room temperature or over a strawberry on the 4th of July?

    2. […] Yes to Hoboken has a recipe for Cool Whip marshmallows – I’ve got to try this […]

      What the what? That is amazing! So simple and yet it has to be delicious. I slave over my marshmallow recipe; I’m so glad I found this alternative for when I don’t feel like making marshmallows from scratch!

      cool whip isnt available in australia but I’ve googled several times to find a substitute for other recipes I’ve tried and it says that cool whip is a substitute for whipped cream…. I’ll give this a go with the cream and see if it works…. it is coming on winter here so this is perfect timing for cups of hoc chocolate! (or milo – the main hot choc drink here)

      These look so cute and yummy! My daughters sleepover party is next week, this would be a prefect idea for late night treats! Might also be fun using these shapes on pie or jello, etc. the wheels are turning!
