Simple 5 Minute 2 Ingredient Whipped Frosting

See how to turn this into a whipped peanut butter cream below!

In my family there is usually a debate between the different types of frosting from the bakery, namely the sweet butter cream and the whipped kind,  what some stores call "best cream".  I personally like both and my preference usually depends on my mood or what the cream/frosting is on.  For example, I like the really sweet traditional whoopie pie pilling in whoopie pies and cream horns. However, for napoleons I like a lighter whipped cream.

My problem is that I can never make this whipped "best cream" . I have tried a few recipes and it just never comes out right.  So with fresh apple pie filling made and puff pastry in the freezer, I decided one to try something out.  We have a container of whipped topping and confectioner sugar.  Hmmmm ....  mix them together and a 2 ingredient whipped "best cream" is born.   It totally worked.

If you are not a fan of that really sweet frosting, you will love this.

Here is how:

Carefully Fold  (do not use an electric mixer, you will "break" the whipped topping) 1 Cup of Confectioner Sugar into a bowl with one container of whipped topping ( 8 Oz) .

* If using the larger tub, start with 2 cups of confectioner sugar and follow below...

Gradually add more confectioner sugar until the consistency is thick, but spreadable.

Done. Simple.   Add a touch of vanilla for more flavor!

Store in the refrigerator for up to one week

Use for cakes, cupcakes, napoleons, cream horns and more!


Peanut butter cream- 

Using an electric mixer,  cream 1 cup of peanut butter, 3 tablespoons room temperature butter and 1 tablespoon milk together until smooth.  Add powdered sugar half at a time. Mix until combined. Carefully fold in whipped topping until smooth.  Use in whoopie pies, on cakes and more!

  1. It doesn't say if you are using a mixer or just a spoon to combine the whipped topping and powdered sugar. Seems like I remember someone saying not to use a mixer with whipped topping.

    • HI Susan!
      I apologize, the recipe has been updated. I gently fold the confectioner sugar into the whipped topping. You are 100% correct about the whipped topping.
