Potato Bounty

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Alice Snowden

Delicious - but only if you've got a VERY sweet tooth!

very similar to macaroon (a traditional Scottish sweet not to be confused with macaroons), where you combine the potato, coconut & sugar, then once set, dip in chocolate & coat in coconut

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mash the icing sugar into the potatoes. It looks impossible but it will work! I found it easiest to use my hands, like I was making pastry.
  2. Add the coconut and the cocoa powder.
  3. Push into a rectangular dish/pan and flatten out until it's about 1/2 inch thick.
  4. Chill in the fridge.
  5. Cut into squares and serve - sparingly! it's very, very sweet.
  6. I called it Potato Bounty, because the taste reminds me of the Bounty bar you can buy in the uk - don't know if it sells in the States too.
  7. Next time I might add chopped glace cherries, maybe some nuts too.
  8. 5 minutes squidging time, about an hour chilling. No cooking.
