Bahar: A simple and tasty dessert for chocolate lovers, coffee lovers, whipped cream lovers, berry lovers, etc. There is a very high chance that you belong to at least one of these groups and if so, I assure you that you'll love these mini desserts.

2. Chill the beaters in the freezer for at least half an hour (or in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours).
