I love when I find an old recipe that has an ingredient that I do not immediately recognize. This dessert calls for a package of dessert topping. “What in the world is that?”, I wondered.

A quick Google search led me to Dream Whip Whipped Topping which is a powdered, and easy way of creating a whipped topping.

So, for this recipe, you can find Dream Whip Whipped Topping or purchase a Cool Whip (frozen) topping. Whichever is easier for you to find and use.

Or, you can make yours completely homemade. Either way, this sounds delicious.
