    If I'm rushing and dont have time to thaw the coolwhip -- can I substitute the whipped cream in a can when making the cool & creamy chocolate fondue? (Sorry, I was such a non-cook before joining PC and I'm still fairly new at this!)

    I would think not because the stuff out of the can is a different consistency and also melts quicker. Cool whip also has a different taste than the stuff in the can. Sometimes the stuff in the can doesn't have the sugar added.

    ok thanks... It's jsut that I have to drive about 90 minutes to a show and didn't want the already thawed out coolwip to melt even more on my way there.. wonder if it would be OK in an ice chest.

    It should be fine in an ice chest. How long is the drive there? Or if you're going to show an hour early, throw it in the hosts fridge?

    Maybe ask the host to purchase whipped cream for you and have it thawed in the refridgerator when you get there....you are making quite a drive to do her show ;) Just tell her you are afraid how the whipped cream may end up after a 90 minute drive! :p

    I think I'll maybe only thaw it for 2 1/2 hours in the fridge (it says to do 4 ) and then put it in the ice chest for the drive.. as I already have other items I'm puttingin the ice chest anyways. Since it probably won't be completely thawed out when I leave, it should be ok for the 90 minutes it takes to get there.
