I grew up on my mother making this candy for my brothers and I and still love this candy today. I have never known any exact measurments for it, but as long as you don't add too many potatoes and get the dough too thin it is impossible to mess up. Hope you enjoy!


  • Mashed Potatoes (very smooth) Powdered Sugar,approx. a 1 lb. bag, Peanut Butter


Pour into a large mixing bowl a large amount of powdered sugar, add mashed potatoes, very small amount at a time and mix well after each addition, powdered sugar will become thin with the mixing in of potatoes very quickly. Mix to a semi-sticky dough. Pour large amount of powdered sugar onto hard surface, cutting board or counter top and roll out dough mixture like cookie dough. When rolled out to desired shape and thickness, spread generously with peanut butter. Roll up into a log and slice. Place slices on wax paper and refrigerate till cool.
