I’ve been eating fluff my entire life, though I never actually called it that til recently. To me, fluff was always known as “that green stuff” or “the red stuff Aunt Barbara makes.” Regardless of the name, I love it. And it’s one of the easiest things to make, so I’m gonna show you how with this totally decadent recipe for Rocky Road Fluff.
There are 2 key ingredients to making fluff: frozen whipped topping and flavored pudding mix. These two things make the light and creamy substance, which holds the whole recipe together. As a general rule, you’ll want 1 package of pudding mix to 8 ounces of whipped topping.
The 3rd component is, well – as much or as little of anything you’d like! Some common ingredients are
- Chopped nuts
- Crushed pineapple
- Fruit Cocktail
- Chopped Pretzels
- Chocolate Chips
- And many more…
So, once you’ve picked your flavored pudding and add-ins, mix it all together and chill until ready to serve. Here’s the only tricky part, mix the pudding mix and any wet ingredients first. If you didn’t choose an add-in with liquid, you’ll need to add a cup of either water or milk to the pudding mix. This will moisten and thicken up the pudding mix.
After the pudding mix is thickened, stir in thawed whipped topping and other dry add-ins. Then sitck it in the fridge to chill. I usually let my fluff chill for 2-5 hours, though you can eat it immediately if you’d like.
In this recipe, the combination of chocolate pudding mix and chocolate chips is pretty decadent, but since it’s mixed with whipped topping the recipe is light and airy. So beware, ’cause you can devour a large helping with ease (I would know!).
