Can I make a confession?

I like cool whip.

I know.. I’m a dessert blogger. I should probably like homemade whipped cream more than cool whip. But cool whip is easy.

However, everything changed when I tried homemade CHOCOLATE whipped cream.

Of course everything is better with chocolate. So now I am addicted to chocolate whipped cream. I eat it with a spoon and it’s SUPER good with chocolate pudding.

You can use it to top a pie, in hot cocoa, use it to ice cupcakes or a cake, or use it as the filling in cookies sandwiches.

Chocolate whipped cream is a staple recipe that every home baker should know how to make. But, don’t worry.. the first time I went to make regular whipped cream I had to google a recipe. So we’re all on the same page – clueless and hungry :) Haha.

I wanted to make this recipe SUPER easy. Don’t be afraid – you can make this!

You’ll need 3 ingredients – heavy cream, cocoa powder and powdered sugar.

Let’s give a brief overview of the recipe-

First step: chill a metal mixing bowl and beaters in freezer for 15 minutes

You’re wondering if this step is necessary. I have made whipped cream by sort of chilling the bowl ahead of time.. meaning last minute I stick it in the freezer or I pull it out of the freezer too early and by the time I actually whip the cream, the bowl isn’t chilled anymore.

Here’s what I’ve observed – chilling the bowl and beaters ahead of time produces whipped cream that has stiffer peaks (that’s a fancy way of saying it’s more stable).

Overall, I do recommend chilling these items ahead of time, but if you completely forget, putting them in the freezer for at least 5 minutes is better than nothing.

Second step: put all 3 ingredients in the chilled bowl and beat with an electric mixer for 4-5 minutes, or until stiff peaks form / it’s scoopable with a spoon and holds its shape.

  1. Looks Yummy!

  2. I want this whipped cream on everything! It looks so delicious :)

  3. I was just talking about how 2 summers ago Starbucks had chocolate whip cream and it was amazing. They need to always have it, LOL. Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Yum, yum, yum!!  My dear aunt, who passed away many years ago, would make a very simple dessert that used chocolate whipped cream (she used chocolate syrup to flavor it) that was spread between whole graham crackers that were lined up on their sides on a dessert plate and then covered with chocolate whipped cream.  This was then refrigerated until the graham crackers would soften (a few hours) and then sliced.  It is absolutely delicious!!  Thanks for bringing back special memories!!!

  5. This looks and sounds amazing! I remember when I was a little girl I found a container of cool whip that my mom was going to use for a recipe. Well long story short I got into the cool whip and ate the WHOLE container! I loved cool whip so much. That night I was so sick after eating the whole thing. It has been years since I have been able to eat it again! However, I will just have to try this recipe! YUM!

  6. Looks very good, friend! And the video is great ;-)

  7. My grand daughter dont like whip cream so, I’m going to make a chocolate cream pie for christmas and will put this on instead of the whip cream, maybe she will like it.

  8. Where can I get the heavy cream or what can I use instead if I don’t have heavy cream?

  9. Put this on waffles and topped with mini chocolate chips! It was a delicious holiday treat. ….I kept sneaking extra spoonfuls of this whipped cream afterwards.

  10. What if I make this in the morning and use to frost cupcakes. Will it hold shape til evening? Or sort of fall over?
