How to Make Potato Candy


  • 1Cut peeled potato into cubes and boil until tender.
  • 2Drain all water and begin beating in confectioner's sugar. Continue adding confectioner's sugar until the potato forms a "dough".
  • 3Place the "dough" onto a sheet of waxed paper and roll into a rectangle that is about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick.
  • 4Spread peanut butter all over the "dough"
  • 5Roll the "dough" up like you would a jelly roll. Keep it wrapped in the waxed paper and place in the refrigerator until cold, about 1 hour.
  • 6Once the roll is cold remove from the refrigerator, and slice into 1/4 inch coin shaped pieces of candy. Serve.
  • 7This candy can be wrapped in plastic wrap and stored in the refrigerator for at least a week.
