The version normally used in our home doesn’t actually have potatoes in it (it’s mostly just a lot of sugary and peanut-buttery goodness), but this more traditional recipe calls for cooked white potatoes.
Potato Candy Ingredients
- 1/4 cup cooked white potatoes
- 1 pound confectioners’ sugar (about 3 cups)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- peanut butter
Mash potatoes, add vanilla and the confectioners’ sugar and mix until a soft dough forms. Divide dough into fourths, and roll between wax paper until approximately 1/8 inch thick. Spread a thin (or not-so-thin!) layer of peanut butter over each layer and roll like a jelly roll. Put in the refrigerator overnight before cutting into pieces.
