Hard to believe that there are mashed potatoes in these but no one will be any the wiser if you dont tell them! I've never really counted how many you get so that number is a guess.

The flavor was okay but not great and it stayed soft. I added cocoa to stiffen it up and it was still very sweet. To keep from trashing it, I used it as a base for whiskey balls....added grahm crackers to a blender with walnuts and whiskey and blended. That we loved. Gave the balls a fudgy texture. I used red potatoes and microwaved them, then totally let it cool. I'm not putting stars because I don't know if I did something wrong and the whiskey balls came out so good!!!
