In a microwave proof bowl, heat whipping cream until steaming, about 2 minutes. Pour in white chocolate chips.  Let sit for a few minutes and then whisk until smooth.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until completely chilled.

Pour mix into the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and mix on medium high.  When soft peaks form, add powdered sugar.  Continue whisking until medium to stiff peaks form.
