I ate far more of these carrot cake truffles than I typically do when presented with carrot cake. It’s just so tempting to ingest one truffle after another every time I walk past them! These carrot cake truffles taste just like carrot cake, but they are lighter and fresher. You can roll them in crushed nuts, dried pineapple, cinnamon sugar, coconut flakes, or all of the above!
These carrot cake truffles come together super easily using their little secret…. Idaho® mashed potatoes! No one will ever know the potatoes are there unless you tell them. They simply help to bind the truffle ingredients together and to lend them a light, buttery flavor.
Note: I originally created this recipe for the Idaho Potato Commission.
