3 Musketeers Copycat Recipe
I love making this recipe because it’s so simple and only requires just a few ingredients! Each one is easy to find at your local grocery store. You can have this ready to eat in just under an hour. But, don’t worry, it’s mostly waiting and freezing time, so you can go about your business until they are ready. This is a treat that you will want to make by the hundreds!
Key Ingredients You’ll Need
Chocolate: You will need milk chocolate and dark chocolate melting wafers.
Cool Whip: You can use this or a homemade whipped topping.
How To Make Cool Whip Candy
Step 1. Add the chocolate chips into a glass bowl and melt for 1 minute in the microwave. Mix and heat again for an additional 30 seconds until smooth. Let the chocolate cool for 15-20 minutes at room temperature. Use parchment paper to line an 8-inch square baking dish. Place it aside. Add the melted chocolate and thawed cool whip into a large bowl and fold to combine until fully incorporated. The chocolate may have hardened bits, but that’s fine. Pour into the prepared dish and spread it out evenly.
Step 2. Place in the freezer to chill for 30 minutes. Take out and cut into 36 squares. Arrange onto the baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place back in the freezer to chill for an additional 30 minutes. Melt the chocolate wafers by following the directions on the package in the microwave. Take the squares out of the freezer and coat them in the melted chocolate. Put them back on the lined sheet and let them harden. Keep in the freezer until you are ready to eat.
Variations For Cool Whip Candy:
You can use a few of the options below if you want to alter the recipe to your liking:
- You can use homemade whipped topping instead of a cool whip.
- Feel free to use just milk chocolate if you don’t like dark chocolate.
