Peanut Butter Candy - Blue Ribbon Recipe

Updated on February 17, 2018

As related to me by my friend Linda. This is her Grandmother's blue ribbon winning recipe.

Potato Peanut Butter Candy

When I was about 4 years old, my mother took in a college student as a border. She would babysit us from time to time and on one of these occasions she made this candy. For years, after she graduated and we remained friends I regretted that I never asked her for the recipe. About 10 years ago, I was monitoring an interactive website and mentioned this candy and the story about my friend from West Virginia. Low and behold Linda spoke up and said she had the recipe. Since I was then doing the Recipe From Nunny Website, I invited her to send me the recipe to be published with my recipes. I have since turned the Recipes From Nunny into Bear N Mom Recipes.

Note from Linda, "You have never had anything as good, I promise!" So here it is submitted to us by our friend, Linda. This recipe was awarded a Nemaha County Fair Blue Ribbon to Alice White-Stedman, who was Linda's grandmother.
