Tonight, on Thursday’s Culinary Adventure:
But not just any potatoes… ICE CREAM POTATOES!!! Hip hip hooray! These are sold at the Idaho Fair, and they are delicious! I went online in search of a recipe, got some general ideas, and here we go!!
You will need: Ice cream, unsweetened baking cocoa, and whipped cream.
-Set out your ice cream to soften a little.
Put the ice cream spheres (soon to be potatoes), back into the freezer to harden up.
IMPORTANT: I only put it back into the freezer for about 20 minutes, and the ice cream was still too soft and very difficult to work with. I would recommend freezing for a couple of hours!!
-Roll that little lump of ice cream in the chocolate, dusting off any big clumps. You may have to sprinkle some more on top to get even distribution.
You did it!
Now, you can mix things up a little, depending on what you want to do.
-Green sprinkles could = chives
Again, yours will look MORE believable, because if it was frozen a bit harder, it would not have made a runny mess all over the place!
Adult taste testers say:
YUMMY!!! Really, really good! I think that they may have been a teensie eensie bit better if they had been frozen a bit longer, plus way easier to work with and more realistic
We think that they are delicious and fun! Maybe cute to serve kids on April Fools Day? :)
