I use 1/2 of one small potato, cooked, mashed with a little dab of butter and salt, and chilled, or at least room temp. The heat affects the sugar just like you put it on the stove, so that explains the gloppy mess. I have a 2 lb bag of 10x sugar on hand. This is not an exact measure recipe. How much sugar you use is going to depend on the type of potato you use and how wet it is before adding it to the sugar. Add sugar in gradually until it forms a ball of dough. It should be minimally sticky. If it begins to dry out and crack as you work with it making it into a log, add a drop or two of milk with your fingers to soften it. Add crunchy peanut butter or topping of choice. Again, there's no measuring here, add what works for your personal preferences.
Roll into log and thin with hands by pulling gradually if its too thick. This is very sweet and a little goes a longggg way. Thin slice and store in refrigerator. Its definitely a fun recipe to do with kids, but prepare for a mess!
