Cotton Candy Ice Cream

Cotton Candy Ice Cream

Incase you missed it, it’s Ice Cream Week here at Make Bake Celebrate. Mostly because it’s suppose to be up to 109 here in Texas and the simple thought of turning on the oven makes me cringe. But also because I had so much fun making 7 different flavors of easy no machine ice cream last weekend I just knew they had to be shared right away! Yesterday I kicked Ice Cream Week off with some creamy Cherry Pie Ice Cream and today I’m back with Cotton Candy Ice Cream, a sure to be summer favorite! You won’t believe how easy you can whip up some of this at home with just 4 simple ingredients!

Cotton Candy Ice Cream Cotton Candy Ice Cream
Unlike the Cherry Pie Ice Cream based off of whipping cream, this ice cream is made using Cool Whip and pudding then adding a little flavoring by adding a Duncan Hines Cotton Candy Frosting Creation Packet. If you haven’t made any Cool Whip ice cream yet, you just have to try it out! I love how the ice cream is smooth and fluffy, yet holds up a little better then the norm in heat.

Cotton Candy Ice Cream

Here’s what your going to need:

1 8oz.Tub Of Cool Whip
2 3.4oz Vanilla Puddings
2 Cups Milk
2 Cotton Candy Duncan Hines Frosting Creations Flavor Packet
Blue Gel Food Coloring (Optional)

Step 1: In a large mixing bowl, or the bowl of an electric mixer beat together pudding and milk. Place in fridge for 5 minutes to firm.

Step 2: Once pudding has firmed up in fridge add entire tub of cool whip and 2 Cotton Candy Frosting Creations Packets, beat until fully combined.

    I love the container you’re using. Its so cute!! Where did you purchase it? =)

    • The Dollar Tree! They had several different bright fun colors. The only downside is I’ve snapped two of the little hinges opening them after freezing however they seem to still work fine, and at a dollar it doesn’t bother me that much!

  2. Oh my goodness – 109 degrees outside? I’d eat only ice cream for the entire heat wave! This looks super fun and delicious!

    • Totally acceptable right? This is our first summer in the desert so ice cream for dinner all week sounds perfectly ok with me!

  3. We took a sweet little girl to the ice cream shop last weekend and guess when she ordered? Cotton Candy Ice Cream, yep, only she wouldn’t eat it. I have a feeling if I made this recipe, she would have it gone before it had a chance to melt! It really looks so good and easy, thanks for sharing!

    • I think this is honestly better then store bought cotton candy, definitely try it! I think the difference is in the Cool Whip pudding pop taste instead of the milky traditional ice cream. The Cool Whip just compliments the cotton candy flavor better. :)

  4. :) i can not wait to try this with my 2 year old!! :) shes always wanting to “bake” with me. This will be perfect for my big helper!! :) …cuddling with her on the couch, eating cotton candy ice cream.. nothing sounds better!! :)

  5. What size (tub) of Cool whip is used in the recipe? Looks yummy!

  6. This is so perfect for summer. The frosting flavoring is such an awesome way to get the cotton candy flavor! So creative!

  7. Love this! And I love those little Duncan Hines flavor creations packets. So many things that can be done with them :) I’m actually moving to Texas in two weeks and you’re scaring me about the heat! Loving ice cream week, can’t wait to see what else you have ready to share.

    • What part of Texas? We’re wayyyyy down there, so I think our heat is a little extreme! But I’ve lived in Texas a whopping six months so what do I know?!

  8. Love the colour of the icecream and also how easy it is to make

  9. OMG I love the pudding mix. SO TOTALLY doing that!!

    My daughter made this for her birthday! She is turning 9 years old this week. It was so easy for her to make and she loved it along with her brother and sister. She loved that she was able to make it completely by herself!!!

    I am definitely trying this. I can not wait! I am in love with everything cotton candy! I even have my own cotton candy maker! I used to get turkey hill cotton candy ice cream until they did away with it.
