Peanut Butter Potato Candy

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2013
This is an old-fashioned recipe that is fun to make with the kids (as long as you do not mind messes! I use 1/4 cup of store-bought mashed potatoes, 1/2t vanilla and about 1 1/2 pounds 10X sugar. I keep milk handy in case it gets too thick, but I've only ever had to use a teaspoon or two. Otherwise, you get the potato soup the others were complaining about. And be generous with the peanut butter- otherwise, it can be a bit sweet. I'm addicted!!!

Potato Candy

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
I LOVE Potato Candy! I have been making this with my grandmother and then my mom for years. A quick alternative to cooking potatoes just for this recipe is to use leftover mashed potatoes- either from a restaurant or from home. The ones I used this evening are from Emeril's Steakhouse, that makes them with heavy cream and butter and adds a bit of parsley. All I needed to do was to add vanilla (1 teaspoon). This method allows for less sugar to be used. For A Halloween treat, I also added red and yellow food color to make a pumpkin orange dough...DELICIOUS!
