Now let your tub of whipped topping get to room temperature. Then add 2 tsp. of Instant coffee into 1.5 tsp. of water until it dissolves. Then stir the two together and fold the coffee gently into your whipped topping.

Now get out a pint sized freezer bag. Fill it up with your 3 ingredient coffee frosting. Put it into the freezer so it can stiffen up a bit. It will need 30 minutes or longer.

You don’t have to do this step but it is easier to squeeze and swirl the frosting on to your cupcakes if you do it this way.

  • Once it is a bit stiffer you just clip the corner of your baggie off. Squeeze out into a nice swirl like the cupcake at the top of this post. This coffee frosting is also GREAT when added to your coffee instead of creamer!

Now bake your cupcakes while your coffee frosting is in the freezer and you will be set. If you want to make more of a mocha cupcake and you’re using boxed cake mix just add 2 tsp. of coffee into the water you would add to your cake mix. It will give it a nice subtle coffee flavor too!!
