Homemade Chocolate Whipped Cream {Recipe}

Let me give you some back story. Two days ago I was craving something sweet. I had a box of vanilla pudding, but I wanted to elevate the dish(so to speak). I had a pie crust in the freezer and the figurative light in my head went off. I will make a pudding pie! Great, I also realized I had some heavy cream left over from my squash soup makings...awesome homemade whipped cream!!! Then I pondered, I have vanilla pudding and vanilla whipped cream that is too much vanilla. Another light bulb...I wonder if I could make chocolate whipped cream?

Have you ever had chocolate whipped cream? Well let me just say it turned out so good that I want to use the chocolate whipped cream for my son's birthday cupcakes this weekend. Somehow I think that would be taking it a step too far!:~)

Homemade Chocolate Whipped Cream Recipe

1 cup heavy whipping cream
2-3 tbsp ground Ghirardelli chocolate powder (to taste)
2-3 tbsp sugar (to taste)
2-3 tbsp vanilla extract (to taste)

Throw all your ingredients in a large metal bowl. Use a hand mixer and mix it on high! Mix until desired thickness is achieved. Taste and add more ground chocolate powder, sugar, or vanilla if necessary.
