I love dessert. I dream of having dinner parties every night so I can make dessert everyday for the sheer joy it brings me. While it’s fun to try daring recipes and make fancy cakes, easy desserts that bring a smile to your face are where it’s at. COOL WHIP Whipped Topping makes putting together dessert a breeze. It doesn’t matter if it’s a last minute dinner with the in-law’s or your best friend’s baby shower you’ve known about for weeks, COOL WHIP will help you get the job done. Last time my Aunt Cindy was in town, my mom called me two hours before dinner and asked me to bring something for dessert. She was already making dinner and she knows I always have some sort idea for dessert floating around in my head. And I did. I made these Chocolate Eclair Squares.
Frozen Chocolate "Soufflés"
- 2 packages 3.9 ounces each JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
- 3 cups cold milk
- 2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
- 20 Chips Ahoy! Chocolate Chip Cookies crumbled
- COOL WHIP for garnish
- Shave semi-sweet chocolate
- Eight 8 or 9 ounce paper cups or plastic if you don’t have paper
Whisk together pudding mix and milk in a large bowl for 2 minutes. Stir in COOL WHIP.
Divide half the cookies among the cups, covering the bottom of the cup. This will be the top of the dessert. Next, spoon pudding mixture on top of cookies, about 1/4 cup per cup. Tap cups to remove air bubbles and settle pudding into crevices. Repeat layers, and tap down pudding. Using the back of a spoon smooth top of the pudding. This will be the bottom of the dessert and you want a flat surface
Freeze for 5 hours or until firm. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving. Let stand at room temperature to soften slightly. Peel away paper cup or carefully cut plastic cup from soufflés.
Place a dollop of COOL WHIP on a plate and spread into a circle. Turn soufflé upside down (cookies on top) onto the COOL WHIP. Top with another small dollop of COOL WHIP and sprinkle with chocolate shavings. Dig in!
