Peppermint Whipped Cream Recipe



6 Peppermint candy canes {or any flavor you want}
16 oz. Heavy whipping cream
Hot cocoa
Handheld mixer (optional)



1.  Place your candy canes in a blender, unwrapped of course.  Blend these to a fine powder.  This should make around 1/2 cup of peppermint powder.

2.  Whip your whipping cream to desired consistency.  I prefer to use a handheld mixer for this but it’s not necessary.  No need to add any sugar as you normally would because the peppermint powder will make it sweet enough.

3.  Fold in the peppermint powder to the whipped cream.  This will make pretty pink whipped cream with tiny peppermint pieces.  Yum!  I like the tiny pieces but if you don’t you can set your mixture in the fridge for a few hours to allow the peppermint pieces to dissolve.

4.  This is completely optional but I like to sprinkle a little chocolate powder on top just for kicks.


That’s it!  This is yummy and is perfect for Christmas get-togethers!  If you try it please come back and let me know how you liked it.

    Oh my goodness! I’ve never thought about blending candy canes. We always end up with so many and the kids seldom ever eat them. They usually sit on the counter for a few months then I pitch them. I need to use your trick then find a better use for them.
