Potato Candy (Favorite of Marsha)


  • 1 small potato
  • 2 pounds confectioner's sugar
  • peanut butter


1. Peel and slice potato. In small sauce pot, cover potato slices with water and cook over medium heat until soft. Drain potato and place in mixing bowl. Beat until mashed. Add half of the confectioner’s sugar and mix well. Mix in remaining sugar, scraping down sides as needed.

2. Line a countertop with a sheet of waxed paper dusted with confectioner's sugar. Scrape out dough onto waxed paper and dust top with more confectioner's sugar. Roll out to a thickness of about 1/4 of an inch.

3. Spread dough with peanut butter and roll up into a log.  Slice into 1/4 inch slices. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
