I wanted to thin out some of my cookbook collection so I decided to place some of my favorite recipes here. This is from the Amish Friends cookbook. This candy recipe contains a surprise ingredient . . . mashed potatoes. Note: This recipe won a first-place ribbon at the Malheur County Fair in Ontario, Oregon. It also won the grand prize in the candy division. Time to make does not include chill time.

Made these for Holiday Beverage Tag. A wonderful combination using the dark chocolate. One of my favorites. Of course you could use milk or semi-sweet chocolate too. Always a 5 star!!
