This was an adventure. I made the mashed potatoes and thought "There is no way that the confectioner's sugar is going to mix with this dry mess!" Oh, how wrong I was! As I mixed, the mixture turned creamy. As sugar went in, the mixture became creamier. It was amazing. Then I thought, "There is no way that this is going to become a stiff dough. It''s so runny." Wrong again! This dough will take every bit of the three pounds of sugar. I cheated a bit and used chocolate flavored confectioner's sugar so that I wouldn't have to dip these. No matter. This recipe is amazing, delicious and versatile. Thank you Stacey! Made, reviewed and weight gained for 2009 Fall PAC.
