Homemade Chocolate Whipped Cream

Need a simple way to make your dessert more special? Try homemade chocolate whipped cream!

Chocolate Whipping Cream

I have been making homemade chocolate whipped cream for years. It is so good!

If you need an easy way to take a simple dessert or cake and more it special you need to try making chocolate whipped cream. 

Chocolate whipping cream can be used for many different things. You can serve it with a bowl of fresh fruit or berries. You can use it as a fruit dip. 

It is also delicious served with Angel food cake, pound cake, pie, or any other dessert that you would serve whipped cream on. 

I have even spread it on top of cake for an easy and different type of frosting. 

Chocolate Whipping Cream

I have used it as a fun way to make hot chocolate or coffee more fun. I have several family members that love a spoonful of this in their coffee. 

Chocolate whipping cream is actually an easy way to make coffee and hot chocolate a little special during the holidays or anytime you have a group of friends or family over.

No matter how you serve it, it is an easy way to make dessert extra special. 

Tomorrow I will be sharing the recipe for the chocolate angel food cake in the picture. It is so good. I will be sharing the gluten free version as well!

Chocolate Whipped Cream is an easy and delicious way to make a simple dessert special.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 3 cups of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa


  1. Sift powdered sugar and cocoa. You must sift this to avoid lumps in the whipped cream.
    If you don't have a sifter us a whisk to combine sugar and cocoa and whisk out any lumps.
  2. Whip cream in a mixer on medium speed for about 1 minute.
  3. Then slowly add sugar/cocoa mixture to whipped cream about 2 tablespoons at a time until the whipped cream is whipped well.
  4. Do not over whip or you will have chocolate butter. You want it stiff, but not too thick.

  1. Oh my Lynn! This looks delicious =D. Love the simplicity of it!

  2. This looks like heaven in a bowl! Chocolate AND whipped cream together? YUM

  3. It’s so simple yet such a treat. I can see that as being a real winner. Thanks for linking up.

  4. That whipped cream looks like ice cream! I’ve never even thought of making chocolate whipped cream. Thanks for the recipe, and for the tip on sifting – I’ve been looking all over for a fancy sifter. Well, I already have a strainer. What more do I need?

  5. Yum, yum, yum. I can think of so many great ways to use this. And perfect for hot chocolate. Great idea.

  6. Thanksgiving and Christmas are probably the only times of the year I eat whipped cream, but sometimes it’s just worth it! I love the idea of adding cocoa to it1

  7. Just made this for a dessert topping. It works well and tastes great. I added one package of vanilla sugar and some “Whip It” to stabilize and hold it.

  8. Leanne McGee says

    Hi how much does this make as i am using it as a cake covering

    • I have never measured it, but I think it makes at least 6 cups. I am pretty sure it will be plenty to frost a cake, but if you want to be sure you could always 1 1/2 the recipe.

  9. Turned out PERFECT for my Peanut Butter pie! I’ve been looking for a chocolate whipped topping for this pie for years & your recipe is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you! My mixer is new so it’s strong. I blended for 1 minute on medium & after the first addition of cocoa/sugar, it became the chocolate butter, like you said. I simply dropped down to low & added 1/4 cup more cream. That’s what I love about this recipe; it’s flexible!

    • I am so glad it turned out for you and that you enjoyed it. I love the idea of putting this on peanut butter pie. Peanut butter and chocolate is a great combination.

  10. Hello, I was just wondering about the ingredients. Do I use 3 cups whipped cream or heavy whipping cream?

  11. yum

  12. If you want to give it an even greater flair, add about 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the mix.

    […] and you can customize it by finding different recipes on the web, like strawberry whipped cream, chocolate whipped cream, or cinnamon whipped […]

  2. […] This is great served on its own, but you can make it a little more special and serve it with chocolate whipped cream. […]
