Nana’s Coconut Cream Easter Eggs
3/4 c cold mashed potatoes,mash only with a bit of milk to make creamier,
4 c confectioners sugar
4 c shredded coconut, i prefer the sweetened angel flake
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
4 oz unsweetened or sweetened chocolate, i prefer using milk chocolate
Combine mashed potatoes and sugar, add coconut,vanilla and salt and blend well.
Refrigerate until mixture is workable in hands.
Form tablespoons of mixture into egg shapes and place on wax paper lined tray. Refrigerate again until eggs are firm.
Melt chocolate and dip eggs in chocolate to cover. I use a metal dipper from the egg dying kits. (Yep I saved them) Allow chocolate to drip off and then set eggs back on tray to dry completely.
Once chocolate has hardened decorate with white chocolate drizzle if desired.
