  • 2 cups Heavy cream Cold
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup Powdered sugar
  • 1/2-1 tsp Espresso powder Optional, To intensify chocolate flavor


  • Chill all of your mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for at least 10 minutes.
  • In a chilled mixing bowl, add heavy cream, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, espresso powder and mix with a stand mixer (with the whip attachment) or hand-held electric mixer until stiff peaks form that are holding their shape.
  • Don't over-mix to the point when your whipped cream starts to curdle and looks chunky or begins turning into butter.
  • Spread this icing on top of your desserts and enjoy!


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Re-whip it before using to make it fluffy again.
