How To Make Chocolate Whipped Cream


  • Heavy Cream

Heavy whipping cream is the key ingredient in this recipe. Depending on your location, heavy whipping cream is also known as whipping cream, heavy cream, or double cream. All of these have somewhat varying fat levels, but all of them work nicely.

  • Chocolate

Chocolate whipped cream gets its chocolate flavor from cocoa powder. Any type of cocoa powder you want is fine. Alternatively, you may use bittersweet or semisweet chocolate bars.

  • Sugar

You will sweeten the whipped cream with sugar. Regular granulated sugar, powdered sugar, or superfine sugar can all be used.

Steps for Making Chocolate Whipped Cream


Whisking By Hand

  1. Prepare all the ingredients.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add the cocoa powder or the chopped chocolate.
  3. Pour the heavy cream into a saucepan and add sugar. Stir well and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  4. Pour the hot heavy cream over the chocolate. Whisk until the cream and chocolate are smooth and melted.
  5. Cover the bowl and put it in the fridge. Chill for 4 hours or until completely cold. (Refrigerate the bowl and beaters a few hours before you whisk the cream for best results.)
  6. (Optional) Add vanilla extract to the chilled cream in a mixing bowl. Whisk the mixture with the beaters until it reaches a spreading or piping consistency. Before using, chill the whipped cream for about an hour.
  7. Voila! Your delectable chocolate whipped cream is ready!
  8. Add a heap of chocolate whipped cream to your dessert or beverage using an ice cream scoop, or put it in a piping bag and make lovely designs with it.

Using an Electric Mixer With Whisk Attachment

  1. At high speed, whisk the chilled heavy whipping cream. As you beat, the cream will start to bubble and afterward become thick.
  2. Continue whisking until the cream is thick enough to not fall when lifted from the whisk or placed on a spoon.
  3. Pour in the cocoa powder or melted chocolate and sugar when the cream reaches this thick consistency.
  4. Finish with a short whisk of the cream.
  5. Voila! Your delectable chocolate whipped cream is ready!
  6. Add a heap of it to your dessert or beverage using an ice cream scoop, or put it in a piping bag and make lovely designs with it.

Tips and Reminders

You may use a hand mixer or an electric mixer to whisk the ingredients together. You may also use a blender or an immersion blender, but be cautious not to over-mix because the cream will whip up fast if you do so.

The chocolate is melted into the cream, which is then chilled for many hours before being whipped. Begin this process at least 4 hours before serving time or the day before to achieve a light and fluffy whipped cream.

To add a twist to the whipped cream and enhance its flavor, you may add pureed fruit like berries, spices such as nutmeg or ancho chilis, or even alcohol.
