Potato Candy

Yum
Potato candy is something I don't make very often, but my boys love it when I do.  One son requested it some time back, so I might just have to make a batch to take to him on our next visit to his house.

Stephen's Potato Candy

1 small potato
1 pound confectioners sugar (approx.)
peanut butter

Cook the unpeeled potato until tender.  Peel then mash the potato in a large bowl.  Mix the sugar into the potato.  Keep adding sugar until the mixture is well blended and forms a ball.  Sprinkle a long sheet of waxed paper with confectioners sugar.  Sprinkle the ball of candy with confectioners sugar then use a rolling pin to roll the candy into a rectangle.  Spread the rectangle with peanut butter then roll up like a jelly roll.  Chill, then cut into slices and store in an airtight container, or leave in a roll and slice as you go.

A little potato goes a long way in this recipe.  It tastes a lot better than it may sound.  Give it a try and let me know how you like it!

  1. This is the weirdest concoction I have ever heard of, Susan...but I can take your word for it that it is good and if your sons love it, no doubt mine would, too.

  2. No jokin' with this recipe. I'm pretty sure I learned it from my grandmother. (It's one of those recipes that's just always been around.) Yes, I'm guessing your boys would like it, too!
