Secret Ingredient Chocolate Truffle

Potato Chocolate Truffle

Sharing is caring!

Secret Ingredient Chocolate Truffle had my kids licking their fingers and didn’t know it had mashed potato as the secret ingredient. I never revealed to the boys, however, when Konda knew, her eyes literally popped out. She said she couldn’t make it out.

I said that was the idea as the theme for this week’s BM#78 was Secret Ingredient and I had to come up with some surprise unexpected ingredient in a regular dish. I got inspired to use mashed potato from here. 

I just used the mashed potato idea and made a truffle with what I had. I have a packet of milk powder that needs to be used up, so thought of using it in this recipe.

Made this over the weekend and it almost got over. I saved some for their school’s snack. Do make this and enjoy the surprise when you reveal this to your kids!

  1. Truly unbelievable ! The inside layer is so sinful that potato would definitely not be noticed , When I read potato as the secret ingredient even my eyes popped out , so Konda is not to be blamed . Ha ha ! But seriously I would love to taste these super chocolately truffles .

  2. interesting – but i can imagine why not, the starch can come from this source, my mom uses it in coconut barfi all the time and we dont tell abuot it especially to the men in the house, the truffled look sinful

  3. I have always believed in the versatility of potatoes. But, have never thought of pairing with chocolate. Now I am thinking of trying potatoes in brownies. I think that will work out nicely too.
