Whipped Cream Ghosts

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!

Heavy cream in a bowl….oh, this is gonna be good!

Hey, Sugar!

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!
