Traditional Scottish sweets

The second wonder of our region Tasty traditional food Scottish Sweets

As you have already learned, tatties always appear at Scottish traditional meal times. Here is a recipe for a traditional sweet made from tatties. Its easy! Why not try it at home. Primary 4 made some in class. Delicious!!

Ingredients Cold and thoroughly mashed boiled potatoes - 1½ heaped tablespoons of mashed potato per bar Icing sugar (have a packet ready – quantity depends on how stiff your mashed potato is) 2 tsp vanilla essence 8 oz Melted chocolate for coating 1 Cup Toasted desiccated coconut (makes 12) Method Cook potatoes in boiling water for 20 minutes before mashing. Mix potatoes with icing sugar; add enough sugar to make the mixture firm. Chill, then roll the mixture into balls or shape into bars. Toast desiccated coconut in a hot pan or on a tray in the oven, at 350°F (180°C/Gas Mark 4) until golden brown. Melt chocolate slowly in a warm pan; stirring constantly to prevent sticking. Coat the balls with melted chocolate (You could use a pastry brush!) and cover with the toasted desiccated coconut on all sides. Allow the bars to cool before eating (and enjoying!!!)
