Anyone that loves Musketeers Candy needs to make a batch of Cool Whip Candy. It is practically effortless and turns out wonderful. I have been making easy candy recipes for years and also make Butterscotch Bars Recipe , Homemade Mounds Bar Recipe and Rock Candy.

Why This Recipe Works

With only 3 ingredients, this copycat version of Three Musketeers is so delicious. It is one of my favorite candy bars and I love this simple recipe.

I think you will be amazed with this transformation of a tub of cool whip and chocolate!

Ingredients

Ingredients for cool whip candy - milk chocolate chips, cool whip and chocolate melting wafers.
  • Milk Chocolate Chips. Use good quality chocolate.
  • Cool Whip. Thaw before using.

Variations and Substitutions

  • Chocolate. Substitute dark chocolate chips or white chocolate chips in this recipe.
  • Sprinkles. Top the candy with sprinkles before it sets.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1. Prepare the baking dish. Line an 8X8 baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.

Step 2. Next, place the chocolate chips in a large mixing bowl.  Heat in intervals so it does not burn in the microwave. I usually set it for 20 seconds, stir, and then continue to heat in 15 second intervals. Continue until the chocolate chips are fully melted.

Step 3. Once melted, add the Cool Whip into the melted chocolate chips. Fold this together using a rubber spatula.  The mixture will be thick, but this is normal.

Step 8. Get out a small bowl and melt the chocolate wafers based on the package instructions. Then remove the candy from the freezer. Dip into the melted chocolate. I used 2 forks. Then gently tap the forks to knock off any excess chocolate.

Storage

Pro Tips

  • Use good quality chocolate. Since there are only 3 ingredients, it makes a big difference using good chocolate. I prefer Ghirardelli chocolate.
  • Fold until combined. Make sure all of the ingredients are well combined before freezing.
  • Freeze until set. It is important to allow the candy time to freeze before dipping in the chocolate.

FAQS

Can you use homemade whipped cream instead of Cool Whip?

I do not recommend using homemade whipped cream in this recipe. Cool Whip is stabilized and will give the candy the correct texture.

Yes, feel free to use white chocolate, dark chocolate, semi-sweet or anything you prefer.

How long will Cool Whip Candy last?

It lasts up to 30 days in the freezer if stored properly.
