Holiday Whippers!

Published December 2, 2011 8:18 AM by Stephanie Bruno-Dowling

Happy December everyone -- one of my most favorite months of the year! Time with family and friends, gift-giving and baking holiday treats fill our days and nights with fun!

Today's recipe is one I would like to share that really represents what the holidays are all about! My 4-year-old nephew made this yummy treat at home with his mom and brought it to our Thanksgiving table last week -- it was a special dessert he made for his cousins (but the aunts, uncles and grandparents enjoyed it as well!). This is a recipe that is easily made in both the classroom or in your own kitchen!

Recipe: Graham Cracker Whippers

All you need are two simple ingredients:

  • Cool Whip
  • Graham crackers

Steps:

  1.  Break graham crackers into square pieces (there is a special edition out now that comes in the square shape!)
  2. Spread your favorite cool whip in the center (my nephew and sister-in-law used both regular cool whip and cinnamon flavored, which is one of Cool Whip's highlighted holiday editions!)
  3. Add another square graham cracker to the top, just like a sandwich and enjoy!

Alternatives to the Recipe:

  • MAKE IT CREATIVE!
    Remember, both Cool Whip  and graham crackers come in various flavors, especially at this time of the year. Right now, Cool Whip has both a cinnamon and a vanilla flavored version for the holidays. Graham Crackers are sold with and without cinnamon on top, as well as chocolate (my personal favorite!), mini s'mores and the list goes on! Two very simple and inexpensive ingredients with endless possibilities!
  • MAKE IT HEALTHY!
    I love cool whip with fruit. What a delicious combo! Why not add in an extra layer of some of your favorite fruit when building your Whipper sandwich? Blueberries, raspberries, sliced bananas and strawberries are all fabulous options for encouraging your little ones to touch, smell and taste something good for them!
  • MAKE IT FESTIVE!
    What is a really simple and kid-friendly way to make this dessert extra exciting? Add sprinkles! If you are celebrating Hanukkah, use blue and silver sprinkles to roll the sides of your Whipper so that Cool Whip is covered in sprinkles. Do the same using red and green sprinkles for Christmas!

Still need ideas?

  • Chocolate graham crackers with vanilla Cool Whip and strawberries!
  • Cinnamon graham crackers with cinnamon Cool Whip and bananas!
  • Plain graham crackers with plain Cool Whip rolled in holiday sprinkles and a squeeze of chocolate sauce on top!
