Cool down your hot cocoa or coffee with a dollop of creamy Peppermint Mocha Frozen Whipped Cream!
Frozen Whipped Cream
The best part of enjoying a hot beverage during the winter months is topping the drink with creamy whipped cream, especially when it’s on a cup of rich homemade hot cocoa!
Do you agree?
The whipped cream is like a thick blanket that keeps the drink toasty warm.
When you give it a few stirs it’ll melt quickly into a creamy puddle before totally disintegrating.
Can You Freeze Whipped Cream?
Yes! I highly recommend turning fresh whipped cream into a frozen treat!
Savor that creamy goodness a little longer.
How? Freeze dollops of whipped cream before adding them to a drink!
What a delicious treat, but you know what makes this extra special?
I whipped up fresh cream with the seasonal Kahlúa Peppermint Mocha liqueur that I picked up at my grocery store!
Now that’s a fun way to jazz up a cup of hot cocoa.
Oh and if you are wondering, it tastes delicious in coffee too!
Add Some Booze To Frozen Whipped Cream
Cool and refreshing peppermint with dark chocolate and a hint of coffee folded into each little pillow of whipped cream!
Such a delicious combination of flavors!
This idea was inspired by my friend Rini from Healing Tomatoes.
A few weeks ago we were online chatting about how to capture a photo of her Hot Chocolate before the whipped cream completely melted.
I suggested freezing the cream, and then my thoughts went to adding some flavor, a little boozy flavor!
This recipe is just for adults, but if you want to leave out the liqueur you can add 1/8 teaspoon of peppermint extract and increase the powdered sugar by another couple of tablespoons.
In fact, there are all kinds of flavorings that you can experiment with.
How about adding caramel flavoring?
Keep warm friends! It’s getting cold, even in California!!

Oh, this is such a clever idea! And bonus points for adding a little booze. 😉
I’m enjoying a little dollop of flavor in my coffee right now 🙂

Isn’t is funny how recipes come about…really like your idea of freezing the whipped cream. The cup sweater is so cute. 😀
Thank you, Karen!
This is a wonderful idea for a holiday party where you are serving hot chocolate. What a great way to make it so special. I have a feeling I would love to just eat the whipped cream by itself, too.
LOL – your thoughts are mine exactly! I’ve been tempted to eat just the whipped cream!
