BAKED TATER SKINS
Christine Hill webmaster of http://www.homeandholidays.com/
6 small baking potatoes (4 to 5 in. long)
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon paprika
pinch of pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Scrub potatoes, pat dry, and rub skins lightly with a little of the butter. Pierce potatoes in several places with a fork. Bake potatoes until tender when pierced (45 minutes to 1 hour).
When cool enough to handle, cut in halves lengthwise and scoop out potato, leaving a thin shell about 1/8 inch thick. Reserve potato for other dishes. Place skins on a baking sheet. Melt butter in a small pan with paprika and white pepper. Stir. Brush insides of potato skins with butter mixture. Bake potato skins until crisp and golden(18 to 20 minutes).
Extras: For variety, try adding grated Cheddar cheese, crumbled bacon, green onion, or chives.)

Dip the pretzel rod halfway into the melted chocolate, then sprinkle the sprinkles over the wet chocolate.
