Working with COOL WHIP

I am working with the COOL WHIP brand this year and the 2012 COOL WHIP Creative Campaign is based on the notion that “What you add makes it.” It’s a reminder to all Moms that the little things she does, like adding a dollop of COOL WHIP to an otherwise plain cake or pie, turns ordinary into extra special.

I think it’s so true that what you add makes it. Any special touches to your desserts will make everyone feel so special πŸ™‚

Be sure to check out the COOL WHIPΒ  Facebook Page for more helpful information.

Be sure to be on the lookout for me in the following magazines…May issue of Food Network Magazine and June issues of Family Circle, and Real Simple!

Take a look at this gorgeous Chocolate Lasagna below that was inspired by me and will be featured in my upcoming COOL WHIP ads.

We all know I am an OREO cookie fanatic, so those cookies layered with COOL WHIP, pudding and cream cheese make for an extraordinary dessert. You are in for a treat with this one!

Place dessert in freezer about 1 hour before cutting into squares to serve.

    Congrats, Jenny!! How exciting and awesome!

    I love Cool Whip. I was raised on it as one of the major food groups πŸ™‚

    Mmmm…I love Cool Whip! My husband thinks I’m crazy because he loves whipped cream, but I don’t like whipped cream. Weird. Anyway, you look great in that photo! πŸ˜€

    Great picture and how fun to see yourself in a magazine! Funny that the slice you’re holding is definitely not the recommended serving size…but rather much closer to the size I would like to eat right now! πŸ™‚

    This is one of my favorite desserts and everyone always loves it! I do make a change though. I use mint oreos instead of the regular oreos and I sprinkle Andes mint pieces on top! Perfection!

    You would have loved the doughnut that I had this morning from our local doughnut shop. It was a chocolate doughnut filled with whipped cream (inside and on top) and then covered with crushed oreos. It was amazing.

    I love Cool Whipp as well!! I always have like 5 tubs in my freezer for when I want a quick dessert!!!

  20. 20

    Oh my gosh Jenny, that’s awesome, can’t wait to see you in magazines! I am obsessed with Cool Whip – if you gave me a spoon and a tub, I’d easily eat the entire thing. But yes, I agree, adding a dollop to finish off desserts does make them extra special!

    A fellow guest brought this to a party last Sat. It was devoured in minutes. Can’t wait for a nice occasion to make it myself.

    Great dessert and easy to make but…the containers of Cool Whip are 8 ozs….

    Sara Dickson says:

    Does 35 cookies mean the whole entire cookie? or does it mean 35 single cookies? Or 35 cookies minus the filling which would be approximately 70 single outside’s oreo wafer s?

    Debbie says:
