Does anybody know the recipe for making candy easter eggs with mashed potatoes? My mom made both peanut butter and coconut eggs, and I'd love to include them in my kids treats.

Thanks so much! Quick answers and I think they're exactly what I was looking for.
My grandmother use to make this for us, Her's was very sweet and so-SO-SO good I haven't thought of that candy in years. Thank you for reminding me of this great old recipe.
I was so happy to find this recipe. As Easter approaches, my sister and I were just talking about the eggs our Mom made for us years ago. It was in the early 1960's and the recipe was in a woman's magazine. I remember that no one could believe the eggs were made of mashed potatoes. How fun to discover the recipe once again! Thanks.
