Cocoa Whipped Cream

This cocoa whipped cream is light and light and fluffy.  It is also lightly sweet and has just enough chocolate flavor.  It is a perfect topping for so many things! 


     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!


      This recipe has a light balance.  It isn't too sweet.  The chocolate isn't overpowering either.  It is just like a fluffy cloud of goodness.  It is perfect on a pavlova, great on brownie baked oatmeal. Of course it would be amazing on top of hot chocolate or eaten with a spoon!


     Do you ever make flavored whipped cream?  What are your favorite flavors?

prep time: 5 MINScook time: total time: 5 mins

ingredients:


  • 1 T cocoa
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream 

instructions

Ingredients:

1 T cocoa
1 T sugar
1 cup whipping cream, as cold as possible


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Whip until you have stiff peaks.
