I followed the recipe and they are delicious! I needed over 20 ounces of chocolate to dip them all though. I did use instant mashed potatoes, but I mixed them thicker (with less water) than the instructions call for and didn't add any butter to them.
I needed about 9 cups of icing sugar. At first the mixture was a bit runny/wet, and I thought it would never form dough, but I chilled it for a little while and it was fine. I let the patties dry overnight as instructed.
I didn't have any problems with the patties falling apart, until the end when I didn't have very much chocolate left and it was getting thick. I kept my melted chocolate in a double boiler though, I think it would be very difficult to keep it melted by microwaving. I used a bent fork to dip them and wiped off the excess on the edge of the double boiler.
This made about 120 candies, I think next time I will start with less potatoes, maybe half or 3/4 of a cup. They are delicious though, and I drizzled them with melted green mint chocolate chips for decoration.
