Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size-Wise: Enjoy your favorite foods on occasion but remember to keep tabs on portions.

How to Thaw COOL WHIP Whipped Topping: The best way to thaw frozen COOL WHIP Whipped Topping is in its container in the refrigerator. Depending on the size tub you have, the thawing time varies. Recommended thawing times are: 8-oz. tub - 4 hours; 12-oz. tub - 5 hours; 16-oz. tub - 6 hours. We DO NOT recommend thawing COOL WHIP Whipped Topping in the microwave.
