Coconut Bon Bons
Don't let the one ingredient fool you...it does call for mashed potatoes...adds moisture, you can't actually taste the potatoes when all is said and done.
How to Make Coconut Bon Bons
- Mix together potatoes, sugar and coconut. Place in refrigerator for 1/2 an hour. Shape into 1" balls, place on waxed paper lined cookie sheets. Freeze for 1/2 an hour. Melt chocolate with wax in double boiler. If you opt not to use the wax, I would add 2 Tablespoons of veg oil to the chocolate for smoother melting and dipping. Dip balls and place back on waxed paper. Allow to dry/harden...and Enjoy!
Store in cool place, they freeze really well.
*parafin wax - you can use this if you want, it provides a nicer, more glossy texture on the bonbon...don't melt so easily in your fingers...but you really don't need it.
