Bounty bar but not as you know them - good one

You all seem to be such proficient chefs. Well here is a place to share some of that cooking knowledge. Or do you have a cooking problem? Ask away. Jams and chutneys go here too.

Bounty bar but not as you know them - good one

You require
8 fl oz hot cooked mashed POTATOES
2 tsp butter, softened
36 fl oz icing sugar
20 fl oz dessicated coconut
dash of salt
1 tsp vanilla
4 ounces dark chocolate
Method
You can use a measuring jug for this recipe.
Line a baking tin with foil.
In a bowl mix mashed spuds with sugar, butter, coconut, salt and vanilla, when nicely mixed spread across bottom of tin.
Melt chocolate, spread over mix in tin.
Allow to cool chop into bars or chunks and scoff.

Came off a discussion of growing spuds in tubs - someone wanted some different recipes for spuds.

Whew! You're a brave lady (oh - that's an assumption), Flo. Not something I'd attempt - which probably means it's gorgeous.

This is definitely different! Might try it though when our potato crop comes in. I do love coconut!

I've made lovely cakes with potatoes - and nobody guesses they have tatties in them. Amazing stuff.

I'm sure you can leave the chocolate off! It's only on top, not all over...

Could you use anything other than coconut? I can't stand the stuff but I like the idea of this recipe. Maybe I'll give it a go with a mixture of other nuts instead.

At least one person I know ate the first lot before the children got any and had to make a second lot.

Apparently there's a serious addiction in that house. :cooldude:
