COOL WHIP Whipped Topping is pretty much a staple in my house. We love using it for anything from dipping apples in it to smearing it on top of pudding. My 5 year old even prefers COOL WHIP to syrup on her waffles and pancakes. Mr. GC uses it on his ice cream and jello. I love using it in my favorite dessert (pictured at left) that I bring to parties and pot luck’s to share. It really is a great addition to any dessert and it is just the right thing to make your everyday treats a little more special.
As a mom of 3 busy children, ages 8 to 1, I don’t have time to create elaborate desserts for them. Being the crafty girl that I am though, I don’t like to just serve the ordinary if I can help it. I like to do a little something “extra”. And when I take the time to do just that, my kids are happy campers.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, there is a dessert that I love to make when going to parties or pot luck dinners. I’ve heard it referred to as Trifle. I’ve also heard it called “Mush”. Whatever name the dessert goes by doesn’t really matter to me. I just know that it is delicious and it’s always a big hit! Well, my girls have been home all week with the chicken pox and I knew that they would need some cheering up so I decided to make them a special dessert.
