My favorite way to top my hot cocoa or hot chocolate with whipped cream. So to finish off hot cocoa/chocolate week, I have two yummy whipped cream recipes to top your cup off with. First up is a easy peppermint whipped cream and then I have a marshmallow whipped cream too. I loved the peppermint version on top of the sweet slow cooker hot chocolate and best ever cocoa mix.
If you use it right away you get little crunchy bits of candy cane in it. If you let it sit a bit the candy canes completely dissolve for a deliciously creamy topping. It would also work well to serve on top of anything else that would taste good with peppermint – chocolate pie, brownies, cupcakes, etc. It also turns a beautiful pink color.Print
Next is marshmallow whipped cream. This recipe is where two of the favorite hot cocoa toppers meet to make one fabulous way to finish off a steamy hot cup of cocoa. I like to let the marshmallows sit in the cream for a bit before using it. Them the marshmallows get all puffy and soft.Print
