There will be some in your family that will not settle for anything less than pure 100% real whipping cream. For the others who are looking for a 'pop' or surprise I prepare Dream Whip according to the directions. It whips like cream and it looks like cream. Where I would normally add sugar, cinnamon and vanilla flavoring I add one tsp or two of a really good brandyr. It does not discolor the Dream Whip unless you use a lot. I would experiment r white rum or even the white spiced rum.
Considering the small amount of liquor you will use, you may be able to find it in the airline size bottle for $3.
Brandy, I think, should pair with either nut and the chocolate, but I am not sure about the rums. For me I woould be tempted to add a touch of grated oraange peel for color on the Dream Whip.
Whipped cream cam be browned. But, I have never tried to do that to Dream Whip because of the water content. .

I would prefer a clear spirit so that the classic whipped cream look wont be distorted.
THANKS!!! in advance.
