Mocha Whipped Cream Ingredients
Here are the ingredients that you need for preparing mocha-flavored whipped cream
l 1 cup heavy cream
l 2 tbsp bittersweet chocolate
l 1 tsp instant coffee powder or granules
l 2 tbsp confectioners’ sugar
l 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
The ratio of your coffee and chocolate must be the same as the one instructed above. I did not use cocoa powder for making mocha whipped cream, as it can make the cream too bitter and will force you to use a lot of sugar. It’s best to use bittersweet chocolate at all times when it comes to making mocha since it still retains the original flavor of cocoa – which compliments very well with coffee. Though there is no stopping you from using cocoa powder if you do not have any other option at home.
You also need a small bowl for sifting the coffee, powdered sugar, as well as mixing melted chocolate into the sifted powders. You will need a large bowl for whipping all the heavy cream and the rest of the ingredients so then nothing will be wasted. You may use a whisk if you want, but it’s best to have a mixer since you will whip the cream for a few minutes. You also need a saucepan to melt the bittersweet chocolate
Preparing The Mocha Whipped Cream
To prepare the mocha whipped cream, you need to make the mocha itself. In a small bowl, sift the powdered sugar and coffee together. If you are using coffee granules, mix a little bit of hot water in a cup, and blend the granules before mixing it with the sifted sugar. On a heated saucepan, place all the bitter-sweet chocolate chips until melted. Turn off the stove once it achieves liquid form. You may mix it with the sifted powders, or separately mix them with the cream later.
In a large bowl, place the heavy cream and start whisking it for a minute. Afterward, add up the rest of the ingredients you prepared earlier. You may place the vanilla extract at this point if you are still going to use it. Continue whipping for 3 minutes if you are using a hand mixer, or 4 if you are using a whisk.
To make sure you are finished, just check if the mixture already looks foamy. If not, mix immediately to avoid the cream reverting to liquid form. Do not mix too much once the cream gets foamy, otherwise, it will become butter.
A Simple Tip For Using A Charger
Applying it to a charger is also very easy since all you have to do is apply the whole mixture into the charger before sealing it completely. The charger will not ruin the flavor of mocha, and the quality of the whipped cream gets better there.
The mocha whipped cream is an excellent addition if you want to top some of your pastries with it either for garnishing or as a main flavor. You can also use it as a dip for your biscuits, or on top of your cold drinks. You will also notice the richness of the combination of chocolate and coffee in this wonderful creation that you now know how to make! Very easy, right?
What made this very fun to do is that you can find it easily, and at a very affordable price. You can purchase cream whippers and cream chargers cheaply online from places like Cream Charger World. So what are you waiting for? There is no need to buy flavored whipped creams because it’s much more fun to make one in the vicinity of your comfort zone – your home!
