Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Potato Candy

This is a very sweet candy, small pieces are better.  Dark chocolate is a must.  When dipping, break off some pieces to dip and return the remainder to the freezer.  Some coconut will break off into your chocolate - that is okay.  

5 Cup confectioners' sugar                                                      1 1/2 Tsp vanilla extract
  14 Oz flaked coconut                                                              1/2 Tsp almond extract
  1 Cup cold mashed potatoes, No                                             1/2 Tsp salt
  -Milk Or Butter Added                                                             1 Lb dark candy coating

In a large bowl, combine sugar, coconut, potatoes, vanilla and salt; mix well.  Line a 9-in. square pan with non stick foil. Spread coconut mixture into pan. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Cut into pieces.   Cover and freeze.

In a double boiler, melt candy coating. Dip bars in coating; place on waxed paper to harden. Store in an airtight container.
