First time I've made truffles and not ended up in chocolate to my elbows and that's because........................................

they are mashed potato truffles. 7 years ago my friend, David Hunter (C2C's romany123 from brightlingsea, England) gave me this recipe to include in Share a Recipe cookbook. I've never made it before today.

What an easy way to get a chocolate jolt!!

about 3/4 cup smooth mashed potatoes
2 T. sugar
2 T. cocoa powder
Almond or vanilla flavouring (~ 1 tsp)
milk to make a stiff paste/dough.

Mash potato thoroughly, mix in cocoa powder, sugar and flavouring to taste. Work into a stiff paste, mould in balls. Roll in cocoa powder unti thoroughly coated, then in vermicelli (I don't understand this, but will ask him), if obtainable. this made 18 truffles

fun little taste of chocolate

Dusting off hands! I kinda had a feeling.
