Frozen Whipped Cream Dollops for Hot Chocolate

I’ve been wanting to try these super simple frozen whipped cream dollops for hot cocoa.  A friend of mine told me about them and while I’ve been putting whipped cream topping in my hot chocolate forever, I had never thought about freezing little dollops.  I added colorful sprinkles because it’s prettier. This is the perfect compliment to a yummy baked treat like my cream cheese apple bread!

I was expecting my dollops to turn out like Creative Mama’s. Goes to show that it makes a difference if you use the spray can whipped topping like I did, or make them from real whipped cream.

Since I had this epiphany of freezing whipped topping, I of course started seeing it everywhere and I’m the last person on earth to do this.

I am very curious about freezing whipped cream and using a cookie cutter to cut out a festive shape like Bakingdom did.  Perfect for winter holidays, or just for fun.

Maybe I’m late to the hot cocoa party and you’ve been doing this for years………but if I can help just ONE person realize they can have frozen dollops with sprinkles for their hot chocolate………..then this post was worth it. :)

    I haven’t jumped on this bandwagon yet, either, but it looks like I need to. I drink way too much hot chocolate for my own good.

      Thank you! They are SUPER easy and I’m sure they’d look better had I used REAL whipped cream instead of the spray can.
