  • 1/2 cup Hungry Jack® Instant Mashed Potato Flakes
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup Jif® Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
  • 2 to 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar I used 2
  • 1 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips or 6 ounces of melting chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening


  • Combine potato flakes and water in large bowl. Allow to stand 2 minutes or until potato flakes are fully hydrated.
  • Beat in peanut butter, butter and almond extract with an electric mixer on low speed until blended. Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, beating until smooth. Make 36 1-inch balls using 2 teaspoonfuls of mixture for each ball.
