Make this impressive homemade candy with just three ingredients! With milk chocolate and a fluffy center, Cool Whip Candy tastes like a Three Musketeers bar but even better. Love easy candy recipes? My Crock Pot candy recipe is also just three ingredients. Perfect all year long. Or give this easy Microwave Peanut Brittle a chance!
I love making homemade candy to give as gifts or even just to enjoy with my family at home. Contrary to popular belief, you do NOT need a candy thermometer, special equipment or a long list of ingredients to make candy.
My Easy Chocolate Truffles and Saltine Toffee Recipe are proof that anyone can make their own sweet confections at home, even if you’re brand new to candy-making. Now, I have Cool Whip Candy to add to that list too!
I even used the microwave to melt everything for this recipe so you don’t even need to fire up your stove. With just three ingredients you can create perfect bite sized chocolate treats to share with a crowd. (Or keep them all to yourself. I won’t tell!)
2 packages (11 oz each) Milk Chocolate morsels
1 tub (8 oz) Cool Whip, thawed
24 oz Ghirardelli dark chocolate melting wafers
In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips for one minute. Stir and microwave again for another 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. (if needed, heat another 15 seconds). Allow to sit and cool to room temperature, about 20 minutes.
Line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, fold together gently the cooled, melted chocolate with Cool Whip. As you combine them, the chocolate may harden into tiny bits. That’s perfectly normal, keep gently folding until all the chocolate and Cool Whip has been combined. Pour into baking dish.
Freeze for 30 minutes. Remove from freezer and cut into 36 squares. Place candy on parchment paper lined baking sheet and return to freezer for at least 30 minutes.
Melt chocolate wafers according to package directions.
Remove candy from freezer and dip into melted chocolate. Place on parchment paper and allow to set.
Store candy in freezer until ready to serve. Best served cold. Can be stored up to 30 days!
