What’s your biggest indulgence during the holiday season? I have so many but one of my favorites is whipped cream. I love adding whipped cream to my food and drinks. I think it makes everything so festive. I add it to hot chocolate, kahlua/baileys and my coffee. I put it on cookies/cakes, fruits and I occassionally just spoon the cream into my mouth.
Sometimes I fantasize about being in an enormous pool full of whipped cream with chocolate shavings sprinkled on the top.

This dish is a keeper because it only takes about 15 minutes from start to finish and yields a delicious result.
