Chocolate Coconut Candies Ingredients

3/4 cup mashed potatoes
16 ounce package confectioners' sugar
4 cups flaked coconut
1 teaspoon almond extract
Chocolate Coating:
2 tablespoons soft butter or margarine
2 tablespoons corn syrup
3 tablespoons water

Chocolate Coconut Candies Cooking Instructions

Mix all ingredients except Chocolate Coating. Drop mixture by heaping teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper. Roll into balls; chill 1/2 to 1 hour or until firm. If mixture is too soft to form balls, chill before shaping.

Prepare Chocolate Coating:
In top of double boiler, mix butter, corn syrup and water. Stir in frosting mix (dry) until smooth. Heat over rapidly boiling water 5 minutes, stirring occasionally

Using tongs or forks, dip balls in coating, turning to coat evenly. (Keep coating over hot water while dipping balls.) Remove balls from coating and place on waxed paper or wire rack. Chill until firm. About 5 dozen candies.

*If instant mashed potatoes are used, prepare as directed on package for 2 servings; measure 3/4 cup.
