Footnotes

  • Kraft Kitchens Tips
  • Cooking Know-How: The best way to thaw frozen COOL WHIP Whipped Topping is in its container in the refrigerator. An 8-oz. tub will thaw in 4 hours. We DO NOT recommend thawing COOL WHIP Whipped Topping in the microwave.
  • Size-Wise: Dessert can be a part of a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions.

Very pretty and easy to make. This can be made with diet gelatin and without a crust. Cut back on some calories this way and tastes just as good.
