After MiMi made maple whipped cream, it got my wheels turning. Fresh whipped cream is so good on its own, but just imagine the different things you can do with it to make it customized to your dessert! This cocoa version has a nice subtle chocolate flavor. It is super fluffy and not too sweet. It is a perfect garnish for you favorite chocolate dessert, berries, hot cocoa or just about anything!
Cocoa Whipped Cream
1 T cocoa
1 T sugar
1 cup whipping cream
- In a medium bowl, stir together cocoa and sugar. Stir in about a tablespoon of cream until smooth. This step is to avoid lumps of cocoa later.
- Stir in the rest of the cream. I covered this mixture and placed in the fridge until I was ready to serve. Alternatively you could go ahead and whip it now, just be sure everything is super cold.
- Whip until you have stiff peaks.
