Did you know that you can stabilize whipped cream with just one extra ingredient?

 By adding cream cheese to the mix, you can create a stabilized whipped cream frosting that is just as airy and light as regular whipped cream, yet much easier to handle. This frosting won't deflate while you frost a cake, which makes it a fantastic option for all your baking needs.

Chocolate Whipped Cream Frosting


Heavy Cream: Heavy cream and heavy whipping cream are very similar, and by definition, both must contain at least 36% or more milk fat.

Powdered Sugar:  also called confectioners' sugar or icing sugar

Cocoa Powder: when it comes to baking, I prefer a Dutch process cocoa powder. It provides a smoother, earthier taste and rich flavor, and provides a darker color frosting. Regular natural cocoa baking powder is lighter in color with a fruity, acidic, and slightly bitter flavor.

Cream Cheese: Full-fat cream cheese is best for frosting.

Pure Vanilla ExtractPure vanilla extract contains natural vanillin, and imitation vanilla is made from synthetic vanillin

How To Make Chocolate Whipped Cream Frosting

  • Add 8 oz. (block) of cold cream cheese to the chilled mixing bowl and mix on medium speed for about 1 minute until it becomes smooth. Use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.

Cream Cheese in bowl

  • Add 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1/2 cup of cocoa powder, and 2 teaspoons of vanilla to the bowl. 

  • Gradually pour in 2 1/2 cups of cold heavy cream while continuing to mix at a medium-high speed. Pour the heavy cream down the side of the bowl to prevent splattering. Add the heavy cream in about 4 increments

  • Watch the mixture closely after the heavy cream is fully mixed in. It should thicken and take shape shortly after this (usually within about 30 seconds).

  • Once the frosting starts to take shape, turn off the mixer and do a quick whisk test. Dunk your whisk attachment into the frosting, then put it out and flip it upside down. The frosting should hold its shape and form a nice peak.

  • Store in the fridge or freezer. Store whipped cream frosting in an airtight container or a mixing bowl covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator or freezer. Use within twenty hours for best results, or store for three days. 

  • Chill the bowl and whisk/beater attachments in the fridge or freezer for 10 to 15 minutes for best results.
