Vintage Recipe Potato Candy

Potato Candy recipe

2 (1 lb.) boxes powdered sugar
1/2 c. hot mashed potatoes, drained
1 sm. jar crunchy peanut butter

Mix sifted sugar into potatoes a little at a time by hand. (Don't panic when potatoes liquify as the first sugar is added. This is what it's supposed to do. Just keep adding sugar until it is pastry consistency.) Sprinkle wax paper with additional powdered sugar. Take baseball-sized ball of mixture and roll out like pastry. Spread with peanut butter and roll like a jelly roll. Wrap rolls in plastic wrap; chill and slice.

My mom makes this every year in the fall and at holiday time. Delicious!!!!!!

this recipe is great because it takes simple ingredients and is super frugal as well.

  4. Wow, I make Irish potato candy for St. Patty's but they look like potatoes but dont actually contain any potato.

    Interesting! I love retro recipes.
