    Hello,
    I am in need of help in adding raspberry to my chocolate frosting recipe.
    Here is my recipe:
    1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
    3.5 Ounces Chocolate Pudding
    1/4 Cup Milk
    1 TSP Vanilla Extract
    3 Cups CoolWhip.

    It is for my dad's birthday and he likes to be able to taste the raspberry, so I don't want just a tiny hint of raspberry, you know?

    I have my own recipe for raspberry chocolate fudge whipped frosting, but it's a secret.
    :D


    I will tell you this though, I add a few teaspoons of black raspberry jam to my recipe. You might have to add a little bit more milk, because the jam will make it thicken up and get stiff pretty quickly.
    I would wait till the last couple of minutes of whipping before adding the jam to the frosting.

    You can get raspberry flavoring, but it tastes fake and weird to me, so I just use jam.

    Jam is a great idea! You could also try freeze-dried raspberry powder.

    The jam idea is INSPIRED! I love that! I make lots of homemade jams and am always thrilled to find new ways of using it!
