  • 1 large
    peeled white potato
  • 1/4 c
    peanut butter
  • 1-2 c
    confectioners' sugar

How to Make Potato Candy


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