1 pkg. (4 serving size)
JELL-O Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie Filling
1 (8 ounce) tub
COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
Best icing I have ever tasted! My husband ate the leftover icing like pudding. I used Low Fat Cool Whip, Low Fat milk, and sugar free pudding and it was so yummy without all the calories! From now on, this will be the only icing we eat. No more of the store bought stuff.
this was NOT the texture of frosting AT ALL. It was tasty, and I kind of dumped some on top of our cake, but it's not frosting. I would be a really good filling for a layer cake, but stick with real icing or frosting for the top of the cake. I don't know why I thought these ingredients would make up a frosting texture, so it's kind of my own fault!!
Beautiful light texture with a deeply creamy taste. It was also thick enough to easily use between layers in a layer cake. I will most certainly use this again, especially as it will be very easy to vary the flavor (by just changing the pudding) to match any kind of cake. NOTE: For a 9" layer cake (4 layers with frosting between each layer and around the entire outside of the cake), I doubled the recipe EXCEPT for the cool whip (kept that to 1 container). It turned out perfectly.
This was great and easy! I really dislike overly sweet frostings, so this was perfect. I did have some problems getting it to spread well, but that might have been a timing issue. I had to make the frosting before the cake was completely cooled, so it sat in the fridge for a while before I frosted the cake.
Wonderful when you like a cold cake, which I do, and VERY EASY. Tastes better than canned for sure. Must keep in Refrigerator.
Loved this and got rave reviews, even from people who are not big "cake" eaters. Used vanilla pudding and frosted a layered "poke" cake with sliced strawberries between the layers. This was a perfect frosting for those times when you don't want an overly heavy and sweet frosting. My son dipped strawberries in the extra frosting, so this made a yummy fruit dip too...
This is a wonderful frosting recipe, I used it with a 2 layer chocolate dirt worm cake and it help the crushed oreos and gummy worms fine. After I frosted and decorated the cake I kept it in the fridge until close to party time and it was perfect. I will definitely use it again, it's a nice light change from buttercream.
I made this for my daughter's birthday cake, and I used white chocolate cheesecake flavored jello and added food coloring to make it pink for her. It was so easy, and so yummy! I love that you can use different pudding flavors to complement whatever you are frosting.
