Hot Chocolate Whipped Cream

Homemade whipped cream has to be one of the tastiest, easiest additions to any dessert. This holiday season, I find myself experimenting with all different flavors of whipped cream. I wanted to share this one with you since the season of hot chocolate is upon us and it is a twist on your normal chocolate whipped cream! It makes a great cupcake filling too!

Hot Chocolate Whipped Cream
Makes about 2 cups

1 C heavy whipping cream

½ C hot chocolate mix

Place metal bowl and whisk in freezer for about 15 minutes so they are good and cold. Pour heavy whipping cream into mixing bowl and beat on high for 2 minutes. Add hot cocoa mix and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. Keep Refrigerated.

The type of hot chocolate you use will affect the taste. For a richer, dark chocolate taste, I recommend Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Hot Cocoa mix. I also tried this with Swiss Mix hot chocolate packets. I used 3 packets, which equaled ½ C. The Swiss Mix version was equally as good, especially if you prefer the taste of Swiss Mix hot chocolate.

You can also mix it up with some peppermint extract or a different flavor of you choice, which I will be sharing next week! It makes a great filling or alternative frosting for cupcakes and other desserts!

  3. Hello!
    This looks so very good!

    I do have a question.

    Does the hot chocolate mix make the whipped cream grainy?

    Have a Joyful Day and a New Year filled with blessings :~D


  4. I’ve been making this for years! It’s also really good with ANY other powder mix! Try cappuccino powder with the whipped topping or to make it even easier i ise cool whip sometimes! A really good one on top of apple cake is to mix cool whip with hot apple cider mix! Lemonade mix is good too! The possibilities are endless! If you let it set in fridge over night it won’t be grainy!

    • Hi Maggie, it will depend on the speed of your mixer and how cold you heavy cream it. It will take several minutes for the heavy cream to start forming from a liquid to a “solid” and then another minute or two until you see the stiff peaks form.
