Hi, I was wondering if anyone had a good recipe for old fashioned potato candy? My g-ma used to make it all the time and we can't find her recipe anywhere. I think she did it by memory because most of the old fashioned bakers didn't right there recipes down. Thanks and have a good day!!
(Some comments to add more powdered sugar.)

I love potato candy!!! , everytime I make it I have to call my grandma to see what the recipe is most of the time I get told this:
make mashed potatoes
Don't mix in butter/salt/pepper
Add in powdered sugar to consistance ( stiff, able to be rolled)
Roll out on work surface
spread with peanut butter
put in refrigerator
take out and cut into little pieces
(if you want to add something dip it in chocolate after you take it out of the refridgerator .... mmmm boy is it good)
Now I'm going to have to make some
This stuff should be illegal....It is so good!!
I had never heard of it till a lady I went to school with made it for us. It is so rich and yummy!! The recipe she gave us was just what nikki wrote, there isn't one.
. . . I have also had peppermint patties made with the potato candy recipe (minus the peanut butter of course) . . . flavored to taste . . . and dipped in chocolate . . . m m m m . . .
