Chocolate Whipped Cream

This is probably one of the most simple things to make.  Whipped cream.  And wouldn’t you know it’s one of the best?  This was my birthday cake this year.  A simple homemade chocolate cake, with my favorite frosting, a lightly chocolate whipped cream.  You don’t have to use the Instant ClearJel, but I tell ya, that stuff is pure magic.  It keeps the whipped cream from getting loose or runny, and it has no flavor.
Next time you’re making a cake and want a quick and easy frosting, give this a try- or serve with some fresh strawberries, or whatever else you fancy!
Recipe by My Stained Apron
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp instant ClearJel, optional
Whip cream slightly, then add remaining ingredients.  Continue whipping to stiff peaks.
(In pictured cake I sprinkled some Heath Bits on top of the cake for texture.)
