2 tablespoons maple syrup, preferably dark or Grade B, cold
Gather the ingredients.
Chill the mixing bowl and beaters for best results.
Beat whipped cream until soft peaks form; add maple syrup and beat until firm.

- The darker the syrup, the stronger the taste of maple will be.
How to Get Stiff Peaks When Making Whipped Cream
Make sure the mixing bowl, beaters, and whipping cream are cold. This will speed up the process and also help to make the final product light and airy. Using an electric mixer, beat on medium speed and mix until peaks form. Stiff peaks are when the cream is fluffy, yet stiff, and when you lift the beaters, the cream will have peaks that stand up. The mixture will increase in volume and also thicken.
If the peaks don't stand up but droop, you have achieved soft peaks, and the cream needs to be beaten more.
