Spicy Dulce de Leche Whipped Cream

1 c. heavy whipping cream

1/3 c. brown sugar

¼  t. cinnamon

¼  t. cayenne

¼  t. red pepper flakes

2 T. semisweet chocolate chips, crushed

In a large bowl, beat heavy cream until soft peaks form. Slowly beat in the brown sugar until cream becomes light and fluffy (if you don’t have access to fresh, very soft brown sugar, just use regular white sugar to keep the cream from becoming grainy). Mix in the cinnamon and cayenne. Pipe on top of hot cocoa. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and crushed chocolate to garnish.
