What You Need To Make This Cool Whip Candy Recipe?
Milk Chocolate: We’re using not one, but two 11 oz. packages of milk chocolate here. Opt for a high-quality brand as it really makes a difference in the smoothness and richness of your candies. Milk chocolate is perfect for this recipe because it strikes a delightful balance between sweetness and cocoa, creating a comforting and indulgent base for your Cool Whip Candy.
Cool Whip: This 8 oz. tub of Cool Whip is the secret to the light and airy texture of our candies. Ensure it’s fully thawed before folding into the chocolate to achieve the perfect consistency. Its subtle sweetness complements the milk chocolate beautifully, creating a harmonious blend that melts in your mouth.
Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers: These 24 oz. of dark chocolate melting wafers are the pièce de résistance of our recipe, providing a glossy, decadent coating to our candies. The contrast between the velvety milk chocolate-Cool Whip mixture and the rich dark chocolate creates a multi-layered flavor experience. Plus, these wafers are incredibly easy to work with, ensuring a smooth and hassle-free dipping process.
Steps To Make Cool Whip Candy:
Step 1: Start by melting the milk chocolate in a glass bowl. Pop it in the microwave for a minute, until it’s nice and melted. Give it a stir. If needed give it another 30 seconds of heat. Make sure it becomes smooth before letting it cool down to room temperature, which should take 15 to 20 minutes.
Step 2: Take an 8-inch baking dish. Line it with parchment paper. This step will make your life easier later on.
Step 3: In a bowl gently fold the cooled melted chocolate into the Cool Whip. Don’t worry if the chocolate gets a bit stubborn and forms bits. That’s absolutely fine! Keep folding until everything combines beautifully.
Step 4: Pour the mixture into your dish. Spread it out evenly. Place it in the freezer for 30 minutes to chill.
Step 5: Once chilled cut it into 36 squares. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Put them back in the freezer for another 30 minutes to firm up.
Step 6: Meanwhile, follow the instructions on the package to melt the chocolate wafers.
Step 7: Dip each square, into the chocolate making sure they are nicely coated then place them on parchment paper to harden.
Step 8: Keep them in the freezer until you’re prepared to serve.
When you combine the melted milk chocolate, with the Cool Whip achieving a harmonious blend is essential. Here’s a helpful tip to master this step; gently fold the two together using gentle motions. Begin from the edge of the bowl and scoop from underneath. Then fold over the top. Rotate the bowl slightly. Repeat this process. This technique ensures that you incorporate air into the mixture maintaining Cool Whip’s airy texture while evenly distributing the chocolate.
Remember it’s completely normal if the chocolate hardens into pieces, during this process. In fact, these bits add a delightful crunch to your candies making each bite an experience. So be patient while folding and embrace those bits – your taste buds will truly appreciate it!
