Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
How to Thaw COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
The best way to thaw frozen COOL WHIP Whipped Topping is in its container in the refrigerator. Depending on the size tub you have, the thawing time varies. Recommended thawing times are: 8-oz. tub - 4 hours; 12-oz. tub - 5 hours; 16-oz. tub - 6 hours. We DO NOT recommend thawing COOL WHIP Whipped Topping in the microwave.
Tip 2
Storing COOL WHIP
Keep a tub of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping in the freezer to use as an easy dessert topping, as a last-minute frosting for cakes or for spooning over cut-up fresh fruit. Once thawed, the whipped topping should be refrigerated and used within 2 weeks. For longer storage, COOL WHIP Whipped Topping can be re-frozen up to five times.
