Aunt Daisy recipe
2TBSPs mashed potato
1TBSP cocoa
1TBSP sugar
Vanilla essence
Mash potato & mix in remainder of ingredients.
Another unusual (sounds more appealing)
Creamy spread for piklets
Slightly warm golden syrup, beat in a little butter till it makes a creamy spread. Goes a long way & saves butter.

We are Irish and the only way my mum could get my brother to eat mashed potato when we were young was to add sugar to it!He no longer eats them like this.I guess adding chocolate as well would be nice as a spread on toast or bread.!

Guess it would be ok if you ran out of icing sugar.

gosh, that sounds revolting.On My Kitchen Rules las time, the Italian girls made potato deep fried donuts, covered with sugar and cinammon I think, and they won that challenge.Also sounding bizaare!

I subscribe to a knitting Forum and this recipe was on it this morning.

Mashed Potato Easter Eggs
1/4lb butter(that would be 125gms)
2 Tblsps powdered sugar(that would be icing sugar)
1/2 cup mashed potato
1tsp vanilla
Mix all ingredients and shape. Chill for 1 hour.Dip into melted chocolate chips.
I might give it a go as it's not a lot of ingredients if it all goes wrong.

The potatoes are simply another form of starch. Left unsalted, they don't have a strong flavour themselves so would take on the sweet chocolate flavour well. No reason why these 2 recipes would be revolting at all!
More people need to think outside the square sometimes :)

Aunt Daisy sometimes took war-time stringency a little too far!
