Strawberries with Cocoa Whipped Cream



I just bought the first strawberries of the season!

Strawberries with Cocoa Whipped Cream

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1 quart strawberries

Combine sugar, cocoa, and cream. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour. Remove and whip until stiff. I use the blender, and it takes less than a minute. Place in bowl and top with cut strawberries. Yum!

  1. Yum! I have an even simpler recipe - leave the 'hulls' on the berries and put out a bowl of brown sugar and another of sour cream! To avoid 'double dipping', place a bit of each on your plate, dip the berries into the cream and sugar and enjoy!
    However, it is hard to beat the combo of chocolate and strawberries!

  2. I went right out to the kitchen and tried it, Peg. Delish! Thanks. I've just made up a second batch of the cocoa whipped cream. The other didn't last long. :<)

  4. Can't wait to try your recipe -I too love the combo of strawberries & chocolate - another straw/choco recipe you might like to try is called Easy Brownie Shortcake and is on the Kraft website & also in this month's Better Homes & Gardens - it's SO good that I've made it 3 times already this week, if you can believe it!

  5. Thanks so much Pamela. I think you'll love it.

    Alison, I do believe it. As I commented to Peg, I've just made a second batch of this. Not only chocolate and strawberries but whipped cream too. I don't think it gets any better! I'll look up the Kraft site recipe. It sounds good.

  6. Oh yum -this recipe looks delicious! I have two boxes of strawberries needing to be eaten and I think this will be a perfect way to use them!

  7. That looks so good. The staff association brought us 2 watermelons to the library and we have been eating on those. Lovely cold and cool and refreshing!

  8. Kate, this is the perfect way to eat up your strawberries. Mine are disappearing fast!
    Kay, do you eat 'em outside so you can spit out the seeds? :<)

  9. They were seedless. Love them that way. Just slice them or we buy those little ones that are about the size of a cantalope or honeydew and just split it and dig in. Yum!

  10. This looks so divine! I will have to try this method. I've left you the Rockin' Girl Blogger award over at my place. No need to do anything =)
