I'm making a dessert that needed instant pudding, but I got the cooking one by accident. I added it without realizing. The mixture is the pudding, milk, and cool whip. If I heat it up, will it ruin the cool whip part? Will it be okay? I don't wanna ruin it. Thanks!!!
I've never tried heating cool whip, but your only option is to try. Instant pudding will set without heating it, but if you don't cook a heat-set pudding mix it will stay runny, so there's 3 possible outcomes:
- Don't heat it - ruined
- Heat it and the cool whip goes wrong - ruined
- Heat it and it works - success
You lose little by trying.
