2/3   cup hot mashed potatoes
 2     teaspoons butter, melted
 1     pound confectioners' sugar, sifted
 2 1/2 tablespoons cocoa or 
       1 1/2 squares chocolate
 1     teaspoon vanilla
       few grains salt
 1/2   pound moist cocoanut
 Put hot potatoes through ricer to remove all lumps, then beat in melted 
 butter.  Put potatoes in a mixing bowl, add sugar and beat until 
 thoroughly blended.  Add cocoa, or melted chocolate which has been 
 cooled, and beat thoroughly.  Mix in vanilla, salt and cocoanut.  
 
 Drop by teaspoons onto waxed paper.  Keep the mounds of candy rather 
 regular in shape and size.  Place in refrigerator or other cool place 
 for a short time to harden.  Hardened candy should be kept in a tightly 
 covered container.
