|Hot chocolate with frozen homemade whipped cream|
Fact: I am a whipped cream snob. I do not EVER buy whipped cream out of a can. I have a Kitchenaid mixer, and I know how to use it. So why would I consume subpar whipped cream? Making your own is the same price, and soooo much better.
I stumbled across the amazing combination of hot chocolate topped with frozen whipped cream purely by accident. The one downfall to homemade whipped cream is that once you whip it, it really doesn’t last in the fridge for more than a couple days before it starts to get all runny. I made a big batch for hot chocolate a few nights ago, and as I was sticking it into the fridge, I thought “Maybe I should see how this is in the freezer.”
I froze the whipped cream overnight, and the next evening, I put a scoop of it into my favorite hot chocolate. It was absolutely GLORIOUS. Like Ice cream, but lighter… and BETTER.
