Just another loaded-up baked potato waiting to be devoured?
This big bad baked spud is actually dessert in disguise. The “potato” is ice cream, complete with a cocoa-powdered skin. Whipped cream masquerades as the sour cream, and frosting fills in for butter. The pièce de résistance? Dyed green pecan “chives.”
This sweet look-alike is good enough to mislead the most astute spud-spotter.
I recently took on this Texas-sized treat (with a group of friends, I swear) and was pleasantly surprised that it’s authentic look didn’t affect it’s down-home delicious dairy taste. The vanilla ice cream was rich, the hot fudge was sweet, and well, it was too cute not to eat.
You, too, can enjoy one if you “mozie on down” to Cowgirl in the West Village neighborhood of New York City.
Not in NYC? Well, you’re in luck: Food Network convinced the crew at Cowgirl to share the recipe.
