    Agreed, cream cheese aspect was missing. I found this: Cream Cheese Whipped Cream - 2 oz cream cheese, 1/3 c sugar, 2 c heavy whipping cream, 1 tsp vanilla extract. Whip cream cheese & sugar on low (hand mixer, but on med with a stand mixer). Add the vanilla & whipping cream. Gradually increase the speed to high. Once it gets fluffy, watch for it to get stiff & look almost dry. Stop at this point or else it will seperate into buttermilk & butter.

    Tasty, but its just red hot chocolate. It's missing the cream cheese component that makes something truly "red velvet".
