Sometimes when you have a slice of cake, you want something a little lighter than a Dark Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. Something light. Something airy. Something that adds the perfect finishing touch. Something like this Chocolate Cool Whip Frosting.
This five minute Chocolate Cool Whip Frosting is the answer to all of the world’s problems. Or at least those that are dessert related. Perfect for cakes, cupcakes, filling for cookies, a dip for fruit – there is nothing that this frosting can’t make better!
It’s the crowning glory of my Black Forest Piecaken, would be the perfect topping on my Chocolate Pudding Fudge Cake and it’s delicious as a filling when you transform my Funfetti Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies into sandwiches.
If you’re looking for a flavor other than chocolate – I’ve heard it happens on occasion! – my Cinnamon Cool Whip Frosting can’t be beat.
Possibly the best part about this Chocolate Cool Whip Frosting – besides the taste, obviously! – is that it only takes four ingredients to create. Ingredients that you likely always have in your pantry and fridge.
Although a typical Cool Whip Frosting recipe utilizes just milk, pudding and Cool Whip, I’ve elevated the chocolate flavor by adding baking cocoa. Instead of a cloyingly sweet frosting, instead it’s more dark and rich.
How to Make Chocolate Cool Whip Frosting
 In a medium bowl, add instant pudding mix, baking cocoa and milk.
 Whisk ingredients together until thickened, approximately one minute.
 Add Cool Whip to pudding mixture.
 Gently fold in Cool Whip until throughly combined.
