3/4 cup mashed potatoes
1 pkg. (16 oz) confectioners' sugar
4 cups flaked coconut
1 tsp. almond extract
Chocolate Coating

Mix all ingredients except Chocolate Coating. Drop mixture by heaping teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper. Roll into balls; chill 1/2 to 1 hour or until firm. If mixture is too soft to form balls, chill before shaping.

Prepare Chocolate Coating. Using tongs or forks, dip balls in coating, turning to coat evenly. (Keep coating over hot water while dipping balls.) Remove balls from coating and place on waxed paper or wire rack. Chill until firm.
