Every year at Christmas my mom would make this wonderful candy. Now I am making it for my family and friends. Mom is still making it and mailing it out to her brother; other relatives stop by just to get some potato candy. Hope you enjoy!

  • 1 medium
    white potato peeled
  • 1 jar(s)
    peanut butter; creamy or chrunchy
  • 2 lb
    powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp
    vanilla extract

How to Make Potato Candy


  1. Peel, dice and boil the medium white potato. Drain and completely cool. Mash the potato until there are no "chunks". Place in mixing bowl. Add vanilla and gradually add powdered sugar while using mixer. Once the dough is stiff remove and roll out on a powdered sugar surface. The dough will be stiff and hard to roll; I roll mine out thin. I use wax paper/parchment paper under the dough.
  2. Spread peanut butter evenly over the dough. I usually use a little over a half of a jar. Roll up the dough "like a pin wheel". I usually get 2-3 rolls out of one recipe. Then slice and place on wax paper; refrigerate and enjoy!
