Chocolate Whip

Yield 5 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
Serve this fluffy whip with fresh fruit or butter cookies, or be totally decadent: Top it with chocolate chips.


  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

How to Make It

  1. In a small saucepan, heat 1/2 cup of the cream over low heat until it simmers, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; add chips, and stir until smooth.

  2. Meanwhile, whip the remaining cream with an electric mixer or a whisk, gradually adding in the sugar and vanilla and whipping until soft peaks form. Fold half of the whipped cream into the melted chocolate-cream mixture. Gently fold in the remaining whipped cream, and place mixture in a large bowl to chill.

  3. Cover bowl, and chill for at least 15 minutes (or as long as overnight).

  4. How kids can help: Fold all of the whipped cream into the chocolate-cream mixture.
