4 oz cold mashed potatoes
16 oz icing sugar (depending on the type of potatoes you may need more or less)
8 oz dark chocolate
4 oz approx desiccated coconut
melt the chocolate in a bowl over hot water and put bowl to the side
In another bowl have the coconut ready for dipping
in a large bowl gradually add the icing sugar to the mashed potatoes until it becomes very stiff
use a silicone sheet with a dusting of icing sugar on it and cover your hands with icing sugar, take a little of the mixture to make a round 2 inch ball, place on sheet and flatten a little.
carry on until mixture is finished, the first ones should now be set and stiff enough to pick up.
take one piece at a time and first dip in the chocolate then into the bowl of coconut, cover well in coconut and return to sheet for it to dry.
Leave to set and enjoy! Eat in moderation though as these are diet busters!!!!!
