Fun Flavored Mashed Potatoes Kids Will LoveIf you haven’t noticed yet … we like to have fun here at ZiggityZoom!  And we had a ton of fun creating some Thanksgiving recipes that kids will love. One of our favorites, and our kid tester faves, is the chocolate mashed potatoes.  This is a fun spin on a very traditional food that many families serve for Thanksgiving dinner.

For variety, we also made mashed sweet potatoes and plain white mashed potatoes to serve as three options,  it might sound like a lot of trouble but it isn’t.  We actually just made white potatoes, mashed and then divided those into two bowls, giving us both the plain and the chocolate, once the cocoa powder was mixed in.
