“When I searched for potato candy on here, all that came up were recipes with coconut. this just has peanut butter. I got it from my best friend's mom. it's VERY sweet, so it's best to eat in moderation.”
30-40 pieces of candy

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peed the potato and boil the potato until it is soft. Remove from water.
  2. Using a mixer, mash the potato.
  3. Slowly start adding the confectioner's sugar and vanilla. Do not add all of the sugar at once.
  4. Once the mixture becomes dough-like, roll thinly on waxed paper dusted with more confectioner's sugar.
  5. Spread the peanut butter onto the white thin dough, being careful not to go too far on the edges.
  6. Roll up the sheet carefully, like a jelly roll. If the sheet is too large, cut it into sections to work with individually.
  7. After it's rolled up, cut into small pieces.
  8. Put these on the side, peanut butter showing and sprinkle cinnamon and/or nutmeg on them.
  9. These are ready to eat, but are better (and the peanut butter doesn't melt) if they're put in the fridge.
