Prepare the Patties
Prepare ungreased cookie sheet covered with Gefen Easy Baking Parchment or wax paper.
Cream cooled potato, sugar and extract at medium speed with electric mixer to form dough. Add water, 1/4 teaspoon at a time, as needed, until mixture holds together.
Form into quarter-size patties and place on sheet. Chill 10 minutes.
Prepare the Chocolate
Melt chocolate with oil in a microwaveable container for 30 seconds. Stir. Continue to microwave for additional 30 second intervals, stirring each time. Stop melting when a few small chunks are visible.
Stir until smooth.
Dip each patty into Dipping Chocolate using a candy fork or plastic fork, allowing excess chocolate to drip off.
Place on sheet, chill to set, about 30 minutes. Chilling is essential.
