With the recent cold weather, the requests for hot chocolate have been frequent in our home! Bella and I decided to jazz up our hot drinks with some frozen whipped cream hearts! These not only taste delicious, but help to quickly cool down the hot chocolate for sensitive little tongues!
We used the following ingredients:
One large tub of Cool Whip
Two teaspoons of Pure Vanilla Extract
Wax paper (for lining our 9"x13" pan)
Small, heart-shaped cookie cutter
In a large bowl, combine all of the Cool Whip and two teaspoons of Pure Vanilla Extract. Stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until smooth and creamy with minimal lumps. Add 1/4 cup of water at this point to help with smoothness and with freezing.
Place the pan on a flat surface in your freezer. We let ours freeze overnight.
Using your heart cookie cutter, firmly press down into the frozen whipped cream. Lift the wax paper lining and gently press up from the bottom side to help release the cookie cutter and whipped cream heart.
Carefully place the heart on top of a steaming cup of delicious hot chocolate! Enjoy!
