Chocolate Covered Potato Kisses Recipe
  • Meal

    Dessert

  • Cusine

Ingredients

1/2 cup unseasoned hot mashed potatoes

1 tablespoon butter

1 pound confectioners\' sugar, sifted

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut

Up to 2 teaspoons cream or milk, to thin

1 bag chocolate morsels

Sprinkles, to top

Directions

Cover a countertop area or large baking sheet with waxed or parchment paper. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the mashed potatoes and butter, mixing well. Gradually add the sugar(s), blending until smooth. Stir in the vanilla extract and coconut; if the dough is too thick or won't hold together, add the milk or cream. Roll into balls (about 1 inch in diameter) and put in the freezer for about an hour. In a medium saucepan or double boiler, melt the chocolate morsels over low heat. Once melted, remove the truffles from the freezer and coat each one in chocolate, using a skewer or fork, tapping each against the side of the pan to drip off excess. Transfer to your sheet of parchment or waxed paper; add sprinkles if you'd like them to have a decorative finish. Let set for about 2 1/2 hours before serving.
