Old Fashioned Potato Candy

Servings 40 slices or more depending on size of slice


  • 1 cup potatoes cooked and mashed
  • 2 pounds powdered sugar plus more if needed
  • 1 cup peanut butter


  • Use a hand mixer to mix one pound of the powdered sugar into the mashed potatoes, in a large bowl.
  • Once the mixture is soupy, add the rest of the powdered sugar plus more if needed to get a dough like consistency.
  • Roll the dough out onto a piece of parchment paper that has been heavily dusted with powdered sugar.
  • Warm the peanut butter in the microwave for about 20 seconds to thin it.
  • Spread the peanut butter over the dough, leaving about a half inch from the edge.
  • Roll the dough into a jelly roll, and place the seam side down.
  • Place in the refrigerator until the dough has stiffened enough to slice.
  • Slice into bite size portions and keep refrigerated and covered with plastic until ready to eat.
  • Enjoy!
