These individual desserts make for the perfect Easter Brunch idea. Whip up your favorite brownie recipe. (I used store bought brownies) Dice them in bite size pieces. Next, I made some whipping cream…I doubled my recipe and separated half making (regular + chocolate.) I layered my dessert as shown in above photo including Cadbury eggs. It turned out so cute and was DELICIOUS!
* See below, fun alternative flavors of Whip…
Perfect Whipped Cream
1 C. cold heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp. powdered confectioner’s sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Chill your mixing bowl and whisk (yes, even those to your electric mixer) in the freezer for about 20 minutes to get as cold as possible. You’ll also want to make sure that your heavy whipping cream is as cold as possible, too.
Add all of your ingredients into your super chilled mixing bowl and whisk together on high speed for about a minute until stiff peaks form. And you are done!
Flavor Options for Whipped Cream
- Honey – Replace the sugar with honey
- Maple – Replace the sugar with maple syrup
- Cinnamon – Add ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- Coconut – Use ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract and ¼ teaspoon coconut extract
In addition to the above recipe substitutions where the vanilla or sugar is replaced, the following options keep those ingredients with some delicious additions.
Chocolate Whipped Cream
To make a chocolate version of this recipe, just whisk three tablespoons of cocoa powder with the sugar and follow the recipe as written. All other ingredients and instructions remain the same.
