Dessert is the best part of any meal, as I’m sure most kids would agree. And while I don’t tend to bake much in the hot summertime months, it doesn’t take much of an effort to come up with a quick and easy idea for a sweet everyday treat or snack – especially if you have a tub of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping on hand.
COOL WHIP is not only the kind of whipped topping that I most prefer, it’s the only kind that I like. From the time I was a kid, I can remember my mom adding a dollop of COOL WHIP to pieces of pie, bowls of chocolate pudding, ice cream sundaes and one of my favorite easy treats – sandwiching a spoonful between two cookies or Nilla Wafers. It’s a fun way to make an everyday snack that much more special.
With my own kids, I love to include little ‘everyday’ treats in their day when I can, especially during the summer months when the kids can get restless from being home so much. COOL WHIP can easily dress up a bowl of ice cream, a cookie or even a quick snack of graham crackers with just a simple scoop. Or if you want to mix sweet and salty tastes, it’s fun to dip pretzel sticks into COOL WHIP or use it to stick pretzels together to make fun shapes.
One of my favorite me-time indulgences is to grab a couple of pie slices from the freezer at the grocery store when I’m shopping, to enjoy at home later. Since I’m the only one in my family who likes my favorite (pecan) pie, I never get to buy or make a whole pie, so these quick little pie breaks after a grocery shopping trip are something I really enjoy. And why I always make sure to keep a tub of COOL WHIP around, because pecan pie is just not the same unless it has a large scoopful of COOL WHIP on top.
When the Clever Girls Collective asked if I wanted to buy a tub of COOL WHIP to enjoy with an everyday treat to write about, I knew that a) my kids would be thrilled and b) I just had to grab a slice of frozen pie to enjoy it with too. And so I did – and it was delicious.
