Something very strange happened to me the other day. I was testing out a recipe and had this overwhelming urge to make whipped cream. This is strange because it’s probably been at least 2 or 3 years since I’ve made whipped cream….or consumed it on purpose. Well, I decided to go for it and then I made WAY too much! So this is what happened.
I piped out all the leftover whipped cream and froze it! Brilliant? I think so! I mean, how often do you really need whipped cream? No, not very often. And when you do need whipped cream do you really want a huge batch or tub of it sitting in your fridge staring at you to use up within a few days. NO! You definitely don’t need that! But every once in awhile a little somethin’, somethin’ to top your hot cocoa, waffle, strawberries or whatever is called for.
Since it’s so close to Halloween, I decided to add a couple of mini chocolate chips and turn the whipped cream into ghosts. So cute, right!?!
Frozen Whipped Cream
- 1 cup Heavy Cream
- 1-2 Tbsp Powdered Sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Combine all ingredients and in a stand mixer and whip the cream, sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks have formed. Use a piping bag with a large tip to pipe little mounds of whipped cream. Add mini chocolate chips to turn these little guys into ghosts!
Add some good quality vanilla.
Mix until stiff peaks form and it looks like whipped cream!
Pipe the whipped cream onto a tray lined with parchment or foil.
Let your new friends hang out in the freezer for a couple hours. Then transfer to a freezer bag or freezer safe container once they are frozen solid.
I can’t hardly handle how cute these are!!!
This is an indulgent item….that’s why you make a small little dollop for special occasions…like on your waffles.
I hope this makes you smile!
