Step 1: Gather Your Materials

You will need:
  • a tub of Cool Whip (500mL)
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • pan (I used an 8x6" pan)
  • wax paper
  • bowl
  • spatula
  • snowflake cookie cutter (you could also use any other shape you would like)

Step 2: Stir

Stir together your thawed Cool Whip and water in a bowl.

Step 3: Pour and Freeze

Line your pan with wax paper.

Pour your Cool Whip mixture into the pan. Use a spatula to spread the Cool Whip evenly. You will want to use a pan size that will give you about a 1/2 to 1 inch thick Cool Whip layer.

Now put your pan in a freezer for a couple hours or overnight. The Cool Whip must be frozen hard for best results.

Step 4: Cut Out Shapes

Remove the wax paper from the pan. Cut out snowflakes using a cookie cutter. You will want to work quickly because the Cool Whip will start to melt.

If the Cool Whip is too soft, you can put it back in the freezer to firm up.

Step 5: Add Shapes to Hot Chocolate

Add your snowflakes to hot chocolate or any other beverage that goes with whipped cream. Watch your snowflakes melt and enjoy!

    Is there any reason that this couldn't be done with actual whipped cream?

    I'm no fan of Cool Whip.

    I think it could probably be done with real whipped cream. You might have to make the whipped cream a bit thicker than normal.
