Cool Whip and Holiday Baking Review & Giveaway

by Nicole on November 22, 2010

Name of Product: Cool Whip

Where can the product be purchased: in grocer’s freezer cases nationwide

Description of Product: “Cool Whip whipped topping is an essential component to everyday desserts which is why we’re thrilled to show you new ways to innovate this household favorite for the holidays!”

Review of Product: I have been known to eat Cool Whip right from the container straight from the freezer.  I love that it comes in different flavors (like sugar free and vanilla!) to help you add a certain something to your recipes.  The folks over at Cool Whip sent me the awesome gift basket pictured in this post to help me with my holiday baking using Cool Whip.  I am especially loving the super easy seasonal pie recipes (find more on the Cool Whip website) like pumpkin pie and chocolate pie! I am going to list the recipes below for you – so easy and so tasty! Make sure to grab some Cool Whip and make it a delicious (and simple holiday!)

Pumpkin Pie
1 prepared pie crust
1 tub Cool Whip topping, thawed
1 tsp. Pumpkin spice
1 1/2 tsp maple
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon.
Mix cool whip and spices, place in prepared shell

Chocolate Pie
1 prepared pie crust
1 tub Cool Whip, thawed
1 tbsp, finely chopped peppermint candies
1 tbsp. finely chopped Oreos
1 finely chopped vanilla bean
1 tbsp marshmallow cream
Mix Cool Whip and all ingredients except crust.  Place in prepared pie crust.

These are 2 really simple recipes that you can quickly make and leave everyone at the table ooh’ing and aah’ing at your culinary prowess.

Giveaway: The folks over at Cool Whip have graciously decided to give one (1) lucky Nicole’s Nickels reader their own Cool Whip gift basket – it had so many products in it, like FREE Cool Whip coupons, Williams Sonoma towels, spatula, pie plate, 2 prepared pie crusts, peppermint candies, Jell-o, marshmallow cream, vanilla beans, and more!
