vanilla ice cream
1 (1 ounce) envelope
sweetened whipped cream
I had this once at a birthday party when I was younger. I found it to be creative and tasty. We also added green sprinkles for chives.
You can also use cocoa powder instead of hot chocolate mix. I too used green sprinkles for chives and cut a slit in the top of the "potato" to expose the inside. On Martha Stewart, they used butter to make butter pats as well, and served with chocolate sauce.
I did this for my kids for April Fool's Day. I told them, "This is your dinner, you need to eat it or you can't leave the table!" (Mom mean voice). They loved it!!
A yellow Starburst also makes a nice pat of butter. Daughter loved this. I served on April Fools Day along with a rice cereal meatloaf.
When I make this treat,I use cinnamon with a bit of sugar instead of the cocoa drink mix,and I make a slit and put green sprinkles for chives,a lemon drop for butter,with a couple of dollops of whipped cream as well as shaved chocolate bar for bacon bits. A friend freezes caramel candies and shreds them to use as the cheese.
Lots of fun! Kids love it.
good recipe, i had it at a restaurant once and they put caramel on top as well, for butter.
Huge Hit! My son was genuinely fooled! Now he asks for this above anything else for dessert :) Thanks!
