Who doesn’t love hot chocolate with whipping cream? Why not try this easy way to dress up your winter days and surprise your family for Valentine’s day?
Frozen Whipping Cream Hearts
You will need the following:
- 10 oz container of Cool Whip
- 1/3 cup of water
- Parchment or Wax paper
- Pan for freezer
- Small heart cookie cutter
- Your favorite hot chocolate
How To Make Frozen Whipping Cream Hearts
- Spoon Cool Whip into mixing bowl.
- Add 1/3 cup of water and stir until creamy and most all the lumps are gone. ( this makes the Cool Whip freeze harder)
- Pour mixture into a wax paper or parchment lined pan. Make sure you don’t use a cookie sheet, as your shapes will be too thin. Pour mixture into a container small enough that your shapes will be as thick as your cookie cutter. ( 1/2 inch-1 inch thick) I learned this the hard way, as I had my first batch spread too thin, and the hearts were melting and breaking before I could get them transferred.
- Freeze whipping cream mixture in pan for 4 hours to make sure it is very frozen.
- Pull out the frozen whipping cream and parchment/wax paper all together.
- Cut your heart shapes and place right on top of hot chocolate immediately. ( the hearts will melt fast, so have the kids ready with their hot chocolate so they can enjoy watching them melt)
- Transfer the rest of the frozen heart shapes into a lined freezer container and place back in freezer for future use.
- **If the frozen whipping cream starts to get soft before you finish cutting the shapes place the whole batch back in for about 15 minutes and cut the rest out.
Enjoy this fun Valentine’s Day treat! I know your family will love it when you surprise them with these frozen whipping cream hearts to top off their hot chocolate.
