- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Chill Your Equipment: Begin by chilling your mixing bowl and beaters in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes. Cold equipment helps the cream whip up better.

- Add Vanilla: As the mixture thickens to soft peaks, add in the vanilla extract.
- Whip to Desired Consistency: Continue to whip until the cream forms stiff peaks. Be careful not to overbeat, as it can turn into butter.
- Serve or Store: Use immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
