Tips for Perfect Chocolate Whipped Cream
- This recipe can be made using a mixer or food processor.
- Use Chilled Cream. Cold cream whips up the quickest.
- Don’t over whip – Whipped cream can easily turn to butter if over whipped. See the photos in the post and video for examples of what it looks like when it’s whipped enough.
- Be Sure to Sift the Cocoa Powder and Sugar. Cocoa powder and powdered sugar almost always have lumps which can ruin your frosting. Sift well before adding it to the cream.
