DIRECTIONS

  • In the top of a double boiler, heat chocolate, stirring occasionally, until chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the potato, salt and vanilla and the coconut. Sift the confectioners sugar over potato, stirring and adding about 1 cup at a time. Mixture will liquefy when first sugar is added then gradually begin to thicken.
  • When it becomes the consistency of stiff dough, knead it even though not all the sugar has been added.
  • After kneading, cover with a damp cloth and chill until a small spoonful can be rolled into a ball. Shape in small 1/2 inch balls. Dip balls in melted chocolate then roll in peanuts or coconut.
