Every week, baking expert Alice Medrich will be going rogue on Food52 -- with shortcuts, hacks, and game-changing recipes.

Today: It's time to mix up your whipped cream routine. Alice shares 3 recipes for chocolate whipped cream to help you go beyond basic vanilla.

I adore plain lightly sweetened whipped cream, but sometimes a little something extra is wanted. Chocolate whipped cream -- dark, milk, or white -- is richer than plain whipped cream but lighter and fluffier than ganache.  

Dollop it on a pudding or soufflé or slice of cake. You can also use it to fill or frost a cake or dessert so long as you keep the cake refrigerated once it is assembled or frosted.
