This is an old fashioned candy recipe. Now if you’re thinking potato candy sounds weird, I can see where you’re coming from so I’m gonna let you know what to expect. This candy is kinda in the same taste category as Fudge or Divinity. It is just that good! You won’t be disappointed!

YOU CAN ADD A TEASPOON OF VANILLA IF YOU LIKE, BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO. Y’ALL KNOW I LIKE THINGS AS SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE. YOU CAN ALSO LEAVE THE PEANUT BUTTER OUT AND JUST ROLL IT INTO BALLS, BUT OH MY GOODNESS, I LOVE THE PEANUT BUTTER!

1
potato, peeled
1 Tbsp
vanilla extract
6 c
confectioners' sugar, or more as needed
1 c
peanut butter, or more to taste

  • 2Stir confectioners' sugar gradually into mashed potato until consistency is like cookie dough; add more confectioners' sugar if candy is too runny.
  • 3Sprinkle a large piece of waxed paper with confectioners' sugar and roll potato candy out into a rectangle 1/4 inch thick. Spread peanut butter onto candy. Roll candy and peanut butter into a tight spiral; wrap candy log in waxed paper. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Cut into slices to serve.
