Ice Cream Baked Potato

This is something I learned from Paul, I can't remember where he learned this. This is a dessert that we like to make for others visiting our great state - since we are in potato country.

This is very easy and fun for the whole family.

Vanilla ice cream
Caramel topping
Caramel topping for gravy
Whipped cream in can for the sour cream
green sprinkles or chopped pistachios for chives
Cocoa powder

Each person can make their own baked potato. First we put on plastic gloves and then you take the ice cream in your hands and form a potato shape. Then roll that in a bowl filled with cocoa powder.

Place the "potato" on a plate, slightly cut the top like you would a baked potato and then top it with whipped cream and green sprinkles. You can add a little caramel topping on the plate to make it look like the gravy ran off the potato onto the plate.

Other ideas include: adding a pat of butter on top (a square of frozen yellow frosting) and something that looks like bacon bits.
