Kool-aid Frosting
from Infinitely Loopy
enough to frost 36 cupcakes

1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks) softened
6 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 package Kool-aid unsweetened drink mix

I mixed my milk with the kool-aid mix to make sure any lumps might be dissolved.


Combine butter, milk-koolaid mix, salt and half of sugar in mixing bowl, on low speed. Once all combined slowly add rest of sugar. Once all combined, turn mixer up to high and whip for 5 minutes. Scrape down sides and mix just to combine.

I wasn't thrilled with the color of the black cherry mix but let me tell you, the flavor! It was like drinking a glass of Kool-Aid on a really hot day. And the tang, sour, cherry flavor, it's like an explosion in your mouth.

This recipe is a definite keeper and I can't wait to try a few of the other flavors like blue-raspberry or the invisible ones. I can just imagine my kids biting into a cupcake with white icing and getting the surprise of grape or strawberry.

Here's the recipe I tried.  I made it with lemonade Kool-Aid.

Kool-Aid Pie

1 graham cracker pie crust
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 8 oz. cool whip
1 packet of unsweetened kool-aid (your choice)

Mix Sweetened condensed milk, Cool Whip and Kool-aid in a bowl. Pour into graham cracker crust. Place in freezer until firm.

This sounds really good. I think I would cut down on the sugar a little if possible though...that is a lot of sugar! I dont like my frostings overly sweet.

I have heard that they just add Kool Aid to a batter and fry the batter.. Doesn't sound too great :/  But I am going to try that icing recipe! Thanks for sharing! I love making cupcakes :)

Quoting aidansmommy219:

 I've never heard of that...I dont think I understand how you can deep fry kool aid lol...

Quoting Cindy18:

Glad you liked them.

I tried the deep fried Kool Aid and it was awful.
