Original recipe yields 5 - 6 dozen



  1. In a small saucepan, cover peeled potatoes with water. Bring water to a boil and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Let cool and mash.
  2. Blend together the confectioners' sugar, 3/4 cup mashed potatoes, coconut, and amaretto. Cover and refrigerate for at least four hours or overnight.
  3. To Make Frosting: Using double boiler, mix together the frosting mix, corn syrup, water and butter or margarine. Stir until butter is melted and mixture becomes smooth. Remove from heat.
  4. Form pieces of potato mixture into walnut-sized balls. Dip in frosting mixture. Set on cookie sheet, unfrosted side down. Refrigerate at least two hours.

I am conflicted over how many stars to give this recipe, as they are *soo* yummy, yet I had trouble forming the mix into balls. There was no way they would have stood up to being dipped in the chocolate - they just weren't that sturdy. What I ended up doing was mushing a ball together and putting it in a little truffle foil and pouring chocolate candy coating (also called chocolate almond bark) over the top. Don't let the mashed potatoes gross you out - you can't taste them at all. I'll definitely play with this one and leave more comments if I figure out how to get them to form better balls.



Very good, but I wish the chocolate would harden so they would be a little less messy!
