An Easy New Frosting for Cupcakes

We were treated to a special delivery in the office today—cupcakes topped with the new Cool Whip Frosting. The frosting comes in three flavors, vanilla, chocolate, and cream cheese, so of course, we had to try all three. The staff fave: cream cheese, which tasted the most like homemade icing. You can buy it in the freezer section of the supermarket, and just like the regular Cool Whip, you leave it thaw before using. Then you simply spread it on your treat, or use a piping bag. While I wouldn’t say the product is healthy (it’s still frosting, after all!), it’s a more nutritious choice than the jarred options, which are among the few packaged foods that still contain artery-clogging trans fats. And at 60 calories per 2 tablespoons, it’s also a lighter than traditional frostings, which pack around 100 calories. Try it on one of our tasty cupcake recipes.
