There's just something cozy and festive about adding a dollop of peppermint whipped cream on top of your favorite wintertime sweets. Just three ingredients and an optional sprinkling of crushed peppermint candies are all you need to make this easy topping recipe. 


Units Scale


  1. Add heavy cream, sugar, and mint extract to a large bowl. Beat with an electric hand mixer or whisk until firm peaks form.
  2. Dollop the peppermint whipped cream on top of your favorite breakfast, dessert, or beverage and sprinkle with crushed peppermint candies, if desired.


  • Be sure your heavy cream is nice and cold for best results.
  • Chill your bowl and beaters or whisk in advance to make the whipping process go even faster.
  • If you have a whipped cream dispenser, you can add the ingredients to the chilled base. See my notes in the post above for tips on how to successfully use a whipped cream dispenser.
