  • 23 oz milk chocolate chips
  • 1 – 8 oz tub of Cool Whip, thawed
  • 1 cup dark chocolate melting chips
  • Sprinkles (optional, for decoration)


  1. Melt Chocolate: In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the milk chocolate chips in 20-second intervals, stirring between each, until completely smooth.
  2. Cool Chocolate: Allow the melted chocolate to cool at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  3. Prepare Pan: Line an 8×8 inch baking dish with parchment paper.
  4. Combine Ingredients: Fold the thawed Cool Whip into the cooled chocolate until well combined.
  5. Freeze: Pour the mixture into the prepared dish. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  6. Cut and Freeze Again: Remove from freezer, cut into about 30 squares. Place squares on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze again for 30 minutes.
  7. Dip in Chocolate: Melt dark chocolate chips. Dip each square into the chocolate and place back on the baking sheet. Add sprinkles if desired.
  8. Set: Allow the candies to set up completely before serving.


  • Ensure the chocolate is cool before mixing with Cool Whip to prevent the whipped topping from melting.
  • For a smooth finish, use forks to dip the candy pieces quickly in melted chocolate, allowing the excess to drip off.
  • Store the finished candies in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer for extended freshness.


  1. Can I use white chocolate instead of milk chocolate?

    • These candies can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for up to a month.
  3. Is there a vegan alternative to Cool Whip?
