• Ingredients
  • 1 cup mashed potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 8 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 8 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons shortening


  • In a large bowl, mix together the potatoes, salt, butter, and peppermint extract. Gradually mix in confectioners' sugar; mix in enough to make a workable dough, between 6 and 8 cups.
  • Knead slightly, and roll into cherry-size balls. Flatten balls to form patties. Arrange on sheets of wax paper, and allow to dry overnight.
  • Place chocolate and shortening in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in microwave, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth. Dip patties in melted chocolate, and let cool on wax paper.
