Yes, you read that right. These delicious treats actually have mashed potatoes in them. I wasn't sure at first when I read the recipe, but the more I thought about it, the more intrigued I became. I am sure glad curiosity got the better of me because these are AWESOME! If you like Almond Joy candy bars without the almonds, then you better make a batch of these. They are so yummy, I just had to share the recipe. This is definitely going to be a keeper recipe. I am sure that I will make it every Christmas from now on.
Mashed Potato Fudge
¼ c. hot mashed potatoes (i just used 1 baked potato, and scooped out the insides)
1 tsp. butter
2 ½ c. confectioners sugar
1 ½ c. shredded coconut
½ tsp. vanilla
6 oz. choc. chips, melted
Line 8x8 pan with foil and butter foil. In a bowl, mix the potato and butter until blended. Add the sugar gradually and beat until well blended. Add the coconut, vanilla, and salt. Spread in prepared pan and spread melted choc on top. Chill until firm. Cut into squares and enjoy!
