National Whipped Cream Day

imageDid you know that today is National Whipped Cream Day?  Maybe the more appropriate question is, did you know that tbere was a National Whipped Cream Day. 

Got me to thinking about one of my favorite whipped cream recipes, ok really Cool Whip, but it counts right. 


Symphony Pieimage

1 King Size Symphony bar (milk chocolate or toffee chip, but I think the toffee is the best!)

1/4 cup water

1 (8 oz.) tub Cool Whip

Graham Cracker Pie Crust


{To Make}
Break up Symphony bar (do not add one or two squares, set aside to use latter for garnish) and add water in large microwave safe bowl. Heat in microwave for 45 seconds. Remove and mix with spoon so that all of the chocolate is melted.

Add Cool Whip and mix very well. But also gently.  Making, sure that all of the chocolate is incorporated.

Pour chocolate mixture into Graham Cracker Pie Crust and spread evenly.

Cover and freeze for 3 hours before served.

I like to use whipped cream from a can and add a little decoration on top.

Pull out those Symphony squares you saved from the beginning, if you haven’t eaten them already, grate them evenly on top of the pie for garnish.

How to Celebrate National Whipped Cream Day

What can be more fun on January fifth than celebrating National Whipped Cream Day? One of the most versatile toppings in our times deserves a day in tribute. This is the day to celebrate your dessert and honor whipped cream as it truly deserves. This article will explore various methods to pay tribute to this yummy treat.



  1. Mix one cup sized dollop with vanilla sugar free pudding mix and pineapple for a yummy low cal snack.

  2. Bring a can of whipped topping to bed one night just to see what pops up.

  3. Pumpkin pie isn't just for Thanksgiving! Bake up a family favorite and pull out the whipped cream for instant smiles.

  4. Mix chocolate, or any chosen flavor, pudding per box directions. Mix in half a cup of whipped cream. Pour into a graham cracker crust. Chill for a scrumptious mousse dessert for dinner tonight. Feeling extra extravagant, go ahead add some nuts of choice.

  5. Purchase at least two cans of whipped topping and start a whipped cream fight. Maybe best conducted on tile flooring.

  6. Bit cold and chilly outside? Make yourself a cup of hot cocoa. Instead of marshmallows try adding whipped cream for a tasty delight.
