My favorite frosting varieties for cakes are the ones made with whipped topping. Light and airy. I make butter cream all the time for cake decorating, but truth be told, I don’t care for eating it. I can, however, eat a whole container of this delicious chocolate cream!
I make it with lite whipped topping so my calories below are based off of that. You can use whatever kind of whipped topping you’d like.
We brought this delicious cake over to a friend’s house and it was a hit! I made a chocolate and yellow layered cake, frosted with the chocolate cream. Compared to butter cream, it really gives it a light texture. Just make sure to always store your cakes in the refrigerator if you use whipped topping instead of frosting as it will begin to melt at room temperature.
2-INGREDIENT CHOCOLATE CREAM
- 8 oz. container of whipped topping Cool Whip, or any other variety
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- Sift your cocoa powder. This is very important to avoid lumps.
- Gently fold into whipped topping. Start with 1/4 c. of powder and taste.
I like to just eat it with a spoon, but it is probably more socially acceptable to actually use it in a dessert.
It is also delicious on angel food cake, or as a filling for my homemade cream puffs. I made some with whipped topping and some with chocolate cream. Homemade cream puffs are actually easier to make than you might think! I avoided them for years because they seemed to intimidating, but they aren’t! Fill them with chocolate cream or whipped cream.
Here are more uses for this delicious chocolate cream: fruit dip, graham cracker dip, frozen between two cookies, over pound cake, or layered in a chocolate fudge brownie trifle. Our chocolate fudge brownie trifle is my son’s favorite birthday dessert. I’ve made it for him several times in lieu of cake. Layers of brownie chunks, whipped topping, and a creamy pudding mixture. You can make it the night before and it actually gets better the longer it sits because it gives the brownies time to absorb the cream.
