An old Irish candy, up dated. My kids loved this, I never told them what it was made of. All they knew it was good candy.


  • 4 cups confectioners sugar
  • 4 cups flaked coconut
  • 3/4 cup cold mashed potatoes (without added milk or butter)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 salt
  • 1 pound chocolate or candy coating


  • Combine sugar, coconut, potatoes, vanilla extract and salt and mix well.
  • Line a 9-inch pan with foil covered with a non-stick spray (or use butter or shortening on the foil). Spread the mixture into the pan, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Cut candy into rectangles. Cover and freeze.
  • Melt the chocolate and dip the bars into the coating. Place on wax paper to harden. Store in an airtight container.
