Peanut Butter Potato Candy

Here's a walk down memory lane. How many remember your Mom or Grandmom making potato candy? When I was little I used to think my Mom could make magic happen when she took a potato and turned it into candy! How many of you remember these? Patsy Haas supplied this recipe and the "walk down memory lane". I have never heard of potato candy before and this looked really fun and yummy!
