So this month I’ll be sharing quite a few chocolate recipes. The key to several of them (and to life in general) is whipped cream. But I’m not talking about that fake stuff in a can. I’m talking about REAL whipped cream. Luckily, it’s amazingly simple to make, and can be made with all real ingredients.
1 cup heavy whipping cream (organic preferably)
1 – 2 T pure maple syrup (grade B organic preferably)
1/2 t. vanilla (organic preferably)
Step one: Pour the cream into the bowl of a stand mixer. Using a whipping blade (see picture below), start the mixer on top speed.
Step two: Add the maple syrup and vanilla. Walk away and let the mixer do its thing.
Step three: Once it looks like whipped cream, taste it to make sure it tastes great – add more syrup and/or vanilla as needed.
You can use this right away, or store it in the fridge for a few days in a glass bowl.
Simple, delicious, and decadent. Enjoy!
