Grandma’s Truffles


1/2 cup of mashed potatoes
1 cup of dark chocolate
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
variety of toppings for rolling such as cocoa powder, coconut flakes, powdered sugar or finely chopped nuts


Melt chocolate in a small bowl in microwave.  Grandma always melted the chocolate in a pot on the stove, I usually use the microwave.  After the chocolate is melted stir in vanilla and mashed potatoes.  You need to stir a lot, I mean a lot.

After mashed potatoes and chocolate is well mixed, place the mixture in the refrigerator to firm, 30 minutes or longer.

Take tablespoon-sized hunks and roll between the palms of your hands. Roll in desired topping, place on a baking sheet and refrigerate until firm.

It will make about 12 and they will keep in the refrigerator for about one week.
