These little mashed potato chicks are a fun way to serve mashed potatoes.


  • Instant mashed potatoes
  • cheddar cheese for nose
  • mini chocolate chips for eyes


  1. Make instant mashed potatoes according to instructions on package. Once cooled, roll mashed potatoes in balls. Make balls of two sizes, a large size for base, and a smaller size for the head. When finished, stack the balls to form the chicks.

  2. Slice cheddar cheese into small strips. Stick one strip into center of each mashed potato head. Place mini chocolate chips for eyes on each chick.
