Chocolate Whipped Cream

Ingredients you’ll need

Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make this recipe. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.

  • Double/heavy cream: Cold, straight from the fridge.
  • Icing/powdered sugar
  • Cocoa powder: I love and use Dr. Oetker Fine Dark Cocoa Powder.
  • Vanilla extract

How to make Chocolate Whipped Cream

To make this whipped cream, simply add the cream, icing sugar, cocoa powder, and vanilla extract to a large mixing bowl.

TIP: Freeze the mixing bowl (and the whisk attachments) beforehand – preferably for 10 – 15 minutes. This will ensure the whipped cream has stiffer peaks, meaning it will be more stable without the need of gelatine.

Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip until stiff peaks form (holds its shape and can be scooped up with a spoon or spatula).

Keep refrigerated until ready to use/serve.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

It probably can last for up to 3 days, but in our house, it didn't last that long, lol. My kids loved it with some fresh strawberries, thanks!
