Directions:
Whip potatoes well with no milk. Combine coconut, powered sugar, and add whipped potatoes. Mix well, shape into small balls. Freeze candy before dipping. Melt chocolate chips, or I have used chocolate almond bark the last years, in the microwave oven, or over boiling water. Dip balls and put on buttered cookie sheet to cool.

Personal Notes:
The first year we were married Steve saw me making these, he said they were disgusting, and wouldn't touch them. The next year I made them again, he didn't see me making them, and they became a favorite that year. I don't bake much at Christmas anymore, but this is the first thing my boys always request.
