This jaw-dropping confection takes Baked Alaska to new heights. While this is an ambitious project that will require at least a full day of freezing time, don't let the tall peak intimidate you—it's surprisingly straightforward to make. Scoop softened chocolate and peppermint ice cream into a cone mold you can fashion at home. Freeze until firm, then coat your very own tree in crushed store-bought wafers and snowy meringue. Burnish it with a kitchen torch tableside, and wait for a flurry of wows.
