This is an excellent chocolate one.

Chocolate Whipping Cream

2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1 1/2 cups cold whipping cream
1 2/3 tsp vanilla

In mixer bowl, combine sugar and cocoa. Add whipping cream and vanilla. Beat on low until blended. Beat on medium until stiff. Makes about 3 cups.

I recently did a whipped cream with that standard recipe but then grinded in a little fresh nutmeg and cinnamon. It was pretty good if you ask me.

Well whipped cream is whipped cream. Are you sure you want whipped cream and not a pastry cream or a mousse?

You are probably thinking of chantilly cream. I think a pretty standard recipe is 1 cup whipping cream, 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, then whip it all together. I don't like mine that sweet, so I just do it by taste.

Use powdered sugar instead of regular sugar it helps stabilize cream also use heavy whipping cream the higher fat content helps it thicken last but not least be sure to whip long enough

I have on occasion used a little GELITIN blume in a tiny bit of water then add it to the whipping process and my whipped cream could sit out on the buffet all after noon and not fade away flavor any way you would want to

Spice it up with cinnamon and vanilla flavors served over some spiced cake, pumpkin pie or spiced ice cream. Even a caramel and chocolate drizzle over the whipped heavy cream would make a world of difference in the taste.
