Potato Candy/Coconut Sweets

We got a gift-jar-mix of this for Christmas and I finally noticed it today, though I haven't tried it yet.

Potato Candy/Coconut Sweets

1/4 cup mashed potato (1 small potato) (probably not a good idea to use Yukon Gold, etc.)
1 lb. vegan powdered sugar
1 bag shredded coconut (12 oz.)
2 squares of vegan chocolate/half a bag of chocolate chips
chopped walnuts/almonds/cashews/peanuts (optional)

In a bowl, mix potatoes and coconut. Slowly add powdered sugar. You may not need the full pound, but mixing it slowly means you can always add more. Spread mixture into a pie plate or 8x8 pan. [Here you can put it in the refrigerator for about an hour, but I don't know how necessary it is so if you can't wait, it probably won't matter much.] Melt chocolate and spread over coconut mixture. [Sprinkle nuts on top.] Let harden in the refrigerator and cut into squares. They're like homemade Mounds or Almond Joys!
