I used to think there was nothing better than cool whip in terms of a whipped topping.
You’d think these words shouldn’t be coming out of a food blogger’s mouth!
I chalk it up to me being naive. But now I am more well versed in the world of whipped toppings.
And I think I will have a hard time going back to cool whip. Or even plain whipped cream, because I’m all about flavored whipped cream.
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 2 tsp instant coffee granules (or more for a more intense flavor!)
- Place a metal mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for 15 minutes.
- Remove the bowl from the freezer. Add the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and instant coffee granules and beat with an electric mixer for 4-5 minutes, or until stiff peaks form / it’s scoop-able with a spoon and holds its shape.
- Use on cakes, cupcakes, pies, hot cocoa, etc. Place leftovers in a container and store in the fridge for up to 3 days
