  • 1 pint (2 cups) heavy whipping cream, well chilled
  • 10 to 12 oz bittersweet baking chocolate (60% to 70% cacao), broken into small pieces


  • 1
    In large bowl, beat whipping cream at medium speed just until stiff peaks form.
  • 2
    In double boiler or in bowl set over saucepan, melt chocolate over simmering water. Pour melted chocolate into whipped cream; fold chocolate into cream (do not overmix; mixture can have a few streaks). Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.

  • Full Bodied Flavor! Looking for that extra kiss of flavor? Add a smidgen of rum or orange-flavored liqueur to the whipping cream once it's been whipped. Delish!
  • Totally Toppings! Fresh raspberries, mint leaves, orange curls, whipping cream and chocolate shavings all make beautiful toppers for this recipe.
