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 weeked 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!
