Potato Scoops- Plain, Chocolate, and Sweet Potato Scoops

Kids will have fun eating their mashed potatoes, especially when they get to try chocolate flavored potatoes!  Scooped to look like ice cream, what a fun dish to serve.

Kids can help:  Mixing, and taste-testing, all three variations of potatoes.

What you need:

Sweet potatoes


Maple syrup

Brown sugar


Red or white potatoes


Sour cream / Greek yogurt

Sea salt

Chocolate flavored potatoes

White potatoes


Hot chocolate mix

For each variation, peel and cube potatoes.  Boil in water, until tender, about 20 minutes.  Add ingredients as listed for each flavor and mix.  Remember when mashing potatoes, that you need a thick enough consistency to “scoop”.

Scoops can be formed with an ice cream scoop for a serving dish or for individual servings use a melon scoop.
