How to Make Chocolate Whip Cream

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer or with an electric hand mixer, whip the heavy cream on high speed until it starts to thicken.
  2. Once it starts to thicken, slow down the mixer and add in the powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Mix slowly until completely incorporated.
  3. Once incorporated, turn the speed back up and whip until thick and stiff peaks form.
  4. Enjoy! Use as a frosting, as a fruit dip or eat by the spoonful.

Can I make this in advance and store it?

You can, but I wouldn’t store for more than a day or so.

You can use this as a frosting, a filling in a cake, a fruit dip, a brownie topper, a trifle layer, piped on a pie, or spread on a graham cracker. Ooh – or hear me out, angel food cake with strawberries! Really, put it on whatever you’d like to enhance!
