Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream Glazed Donuts

As simple as all the other desserts looked, this one is more for the intermediate ice cream maker. You can half the donuts for the figure friendly sandwich, but for decadence use two donuts. Start with one of the donuts and place the flat side up, next place a scoop of ice cream in the middle and add the top donut with the flat side touching the ice cream. Freeze these and then dip them in chocolate and freeze in last time. You omit the last round of freezing and serve them after you dip them in chocolate. This one is not for those who are watching their figure, but it will surely tempt them to try it.
