Potato Candy-a good old fashion recipe
This recipe was given to me by my grandmother. It is easy to make and has a flavor similar to white fudge. You can be creative or simple. To make this fun recipe you need 4 basic ingredients.
- Medium Potato
- Bag of Powdered Sugar
- Dash of vanilla
- Peanut Butter
Boil the potato with skin on till tender. Let cool and then peel. Using a potato masher, mash the potato in a glass bowl. Then begin adding the powdered sugar a little at a time, then add dash of vanilla. The potato will liquify the powered sugar. Keep adding the powered sugar and stir till a soft dough forms.
Sprinkle some powered sugar on a cutting board or piece of wax paper. Remove dough from bowl and place on powered sugar. Using a rolling pin roll out dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. Then spread peanut butter on top. Lifting an edge of dough start rolling up dough like a jelly roll. Place in freezer till cold and firm. Overnight is best. Then slice and enjoy!
