When I stumbled upon this recipe
for Irish Potato Candy, I had no idea how popular
it'd be! Enjoy!
1 small potato
dash of salt
1 Tbsp butter
1 lb confectioner's sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup peanut butter
Peel cooked potato. Mash with
salt and butter. Add sugar, 1/3 at a time, beating
until smooth and well blended. Mix in the vanilla.
If the mixture is not stiff enough to roll, add
more sugar. Roll out between 2 sheets of
wax paper until 1/8 inch thick. Spread roll with
peanut butter. Roll up like jelly roll. Chill for
at least 1 hour, then slice into 1/4 inch pieces.
Let ripen a day before eating.
