Fresh Fruit Marsala
with Chantilly Crème

This is a fresh and easy treat for a quick brunch or an afternoon pick me up. My husband loved how wonderfully dense and creamy the whipped topping was compared to that which comes from a can. It's even more economical to make this fresh and the wow factor from your family doesn't hurt either!

1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
2-3 Tbsp. Sugar
1 Tsp. Pure Vanilla (or Marsala)

Freshly washed and cut up fruit of your choice
1 Tbs. Sugar
2 Tbs. Marsala

Prepare fresh fruit. Drizzle Marsala Wine over fruit. *Sprinkle a few dashes of sugar only if needed on your fruit. Refrigerate till Chantilly Cream is ready.

Whip cream in blender till soft peaks form. Sprinkle sugar over cream. Continue whipping till stiff peaks form. Add vanilla or Marsala, whip gently till just incorporated.

I used a pastry bag with a star tip for this, but a spoon will do just fine! Spoon cream into bottom of serving glasses, evenly distribute fruit and top off with more Chantilly Cream!
Buon Appetito..

That looks so pretty and delicious. It could be a dessert or a meal. This would be a great addition to a luncheon I'm thinking of giving. Thanks for the suggestion my friend.

I am going try Marsala in my whipped cream next time I make it. Great idea.
