This was the 2nd Thanksgiving that I've made this exact recipe. I had to add crushed cornflakes TO THE potato mixture, and that helped firm it up a bit. I never thought of chilling it for awhile. I love this recipe, and so do my picky inlaws!!!

IF you BAKE the potatoes before peeling them instead of boiling them, the mixture is a bit drier and sticks together better. Also, I tried rolling them in nuts(pecans) and in a mixture of nuts and a crushed FROSTED cereal, a little sweeter crunch with the frosted cereal topping.

YUM! This recipe is really good! Making the potatoes into balls was a little challenging as mentioned, but after chilling it in the fridge for a while, it was workable. The only problem I had was that the marshmellows kind of disappeared from the inside. I made these ahead and froze them and then had to cook them longer, so maybe that's why. The marshmellow flavor was still there though and they were GREAT!!
