Potato Peanut Butter Candy Recipe

Here is a great recipe from the old country. We aren't sure which old country, but it was passed down from Molly's Mother who grew up in the Reading, Pennsylvania area.

This candy is easy to make and will really hit the spot if you have a sweet tooth.

  • 1 sm. potato, boiled & peeled
  • 1-2 lb. pkg. confectioners' sugar
  • Peanut butter
  • Mash potato and start adding the confectioners' sugar.
  • The potato will become almost liquid.
  • Keep adding confectioners' sugar until firm enough to make a large ball.
  • Roll mixture on a pastry sheet.
  • Spread with peanut butter.
  • More confectioners' sugar may be added to keep it from sticking to the rolling pin.
  • Then, roll up as a jelly roll.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour and slice in thin pieces.
