Also thanks to a certain series of books my daughter is going through a whole EVERYTHING MUST BE FANCY!!! phase. And there's nothing fancier than dessert.
HOWEVER. I am awful at baking. (It's possible that I'm actually just terrible at following directions.) So I'm forever looking for ways to turn simple things into fancy treats that even I - with a 3 year old helper - can't mess up. COOL WHIP Whipped Topping is perfect for this. For example:
|Hot coco with a spoonful of frozen COOL WHIP. It both cools it off and makes it extra fancy.|
Strawberries with COOL WHIP. Probably my favorite dessert ever.
But the reason I was really excited about this opportunity is that it gave me an excuse to try out a recipe I've been wanting to make with my daughter. This one is straight from my childhood when I thought this was the about the Coolest. Thing. Ever:
Buried Treasure Fancy Treats (because even everyday treats in this house must be FANCY):
What you need:
COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
Package of chocolate pudding
Milk to make the pudding
Step 1: Make the pudding.
Step 2: Put some of the pudding at the bottom of a cup.
Step 3: Put some COOL WHIP Whipped Topping on top of the pudding in the center of the cup.
Step 4: Hide the COOL WHIP with another layer of pudding. Be careful to get around the sides so that none of the COOL WHIP shows from the outside.
|There's one cup for each member of our family. She made a point to even make a little one for her brother. Adorable.|
|There's a really fancy surprise but I can't tell daddy because it's a secret. SHHHHH|
Step 7: Find the surprise yourself and get really excited about it.
Step 8: Enjoy!
|Dude. Whatever this is? AMAZING.|
