This recipe has a light balance.  It isn’t too sweet. 

The chocolate isn’t overpowering either.  It is just like a fluffy cloud of goodness. 

It is perfect on a pavlova, great on brownie baked oatmeal. Of course it would be amazing on top of hot chocolate or eaten with a spoon!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 T cocoa
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together cocoa and sugar.  Stir in about a tablespoon of cream until smooth.  This step is to avoid lumps of cocoa later.
  2. Stir in the rest of the cream.  I covered this mixture and placed in the fridge until I was ready to serve.  Alternatively you could go ahead and whip it now, just be sure everything is super cold.
  3. Whip until you have stiff peaks.
