Are you looking to make a fun Valentine’s treat for your kids? You HAVE to check out this easy homemade whipped cream recipe! If your kids love candy (which, of course they do, duh), they’ll love this Cherry Fun Dip flavored whipped cream!Yes, you read that right. Homemade Whipped Cream flavored with Fun Dip. This is a super easy way to treat the kids for Valentine’s Day. I like to think that my kid’s don’t eat a lot of junk food. But I would be kidding myself. I really am trying to work on that this year. But there are a few days out of the year, when an extra special treat just makes sense. And Valentine’s Day is one of those days.
If you didn’t see my Stout Brownie post the other day I became obsessed with all the things you can do with homemade whipped cream. So I decided to see if I could flavor it with candy. Well, let me be perfectly honest. I originally tried cherry jello, and since I am a novice in the kitchen, I had no idea that the gelatin would make the heavy cream get crunk. That is really just the best way to describe it. It’s totally what it turns in to when you add jello to heavy whipping cream. I mean it started out fine, and then BAM! Crunk.
How to Make Flavored Homemade Whipped Cream
Now is the perfect time to find multi packs of Fun Dip at Target. I didn’t think I would have trouble finding Fun Dip, but it isn’t easy to just buy one or two bags of it (Note to my local OC peeps: the Irvine Spectrum has a candy store in the Target wing that does sell them by the piece). I picked up a package of Valentine’s sized Fun Dips and picked out all the cherry (blue would just be super grody… Not really – pink is just cuter). Making the Cherry Fun Dip Whipped Cream is really easy.
Mix it up for about 3 minutes, watching for soft peaks.That is all it takes.And since you have all those leftover Lik-a-sticks you might as well put it to good use.How awesome will your kids think you are when you surprise them with this on Valentine’s Day morning in their chocolate milk. Oh, you don’t serve this type of trash to your kids that early? Then by all means, save this for afternoon snack.It is tart and sweet and cherry-rific.
There really is very little way that your kids wouldn’t like this. I’d like to pretend that this photo was taken very early in the morning due to both kids still being in their pajamas…Ok, so who is going to try this? Also great for ice cream sundaes, brownies, pies, birthday parties, baby showers and bat mitzvahs.

- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 tbsp powdered sugar
- 4 oz Cherry Fun Dip

Beat until soft peaks form.

I used fun-sized packages of Fun Dip because that is all I could find. I'm not sure if the regular, individually sold packages are bigger than this so just know that you will need about 4 total ounces of the powder.
