New food ideas
Inspired by a comment from cthulhia (read "it's all her fault"), Googling for chocolate mashed potatoes turned up:

http://www.frugal-moms.com/cooking/potatodesserts.shtml

I think i may still try to just make chocolate mashed potates. Like, boil potatoes, mash with maybe some soy milk, cocoa powder, and cayenne or something. Or maybe baking chocolate instead of cocoa, I'm not sure.

I'd eat it if you tried it.

A favorite in Maine: Needhams!

Also, http://www.recipecottage.com/candy/ has an array of more or less nasty-sounding Mashed Potato Candies. (I think it's the powdered sugar by the box that's making these recipes icky to me. And the occasional paraffin wax.)

Do you not like powdered sugar, or is it just the quantities that are bothering you?

I'll admit that a box of powdered sugar for 1/4 cup of mashed potatoes seems pretty extreme.

It's the ratio of powdered sugar to other ingredients, not the powdered sugar per se.

And by the way, copy editor boy, am I right to italicize "per se"?

You can, but you don't have to--it's one of those half-adopted foreign phrases. When they're fully naturalized (like "et cetera"), they don't get italics.
