This next recipe is fun! You won't believe it's really made from mashed potatoes. Granted, it doesn't use much, but with the coconut macaroon base and thick chocolate topping, it tastes like a candy bar.
Mashed Potato Candy2 ½ cups medium unsweetened coconut
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp hard margarine or butter
Stir potatoes, first margarine portion, vanilla and salt in a large bowl.
Mix in icing sugar and coconut.
Press firmly in a greased 8x8x2 inch pan. (May also be lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy removal before cutting especially if your pan has a non-stick coating.)
Melt chocolate chips and 2nd portion of margarine in medium saucepan on low, stirring often. Spread on top of squares.
Chill for 1 hour. Cut into 50 squares. (Removes from pan easily for cutting if parchment paper used.)
