Uncle Larry's Potato Candy

Note: My BIL brought the ingredients to teach Little Guy how to each potato candy while home for Thanksgiving. He said it was the first thing he ever learned to cook. My BIL is now a big executive for Morrisons. He knows how to cook and he knows food. Little Guy would be thrilled to learn to cook with his Uncle L! We just wish they lived closer.

Uncle Larry's Potato Candy


1 small white potato
1 box confectioners sugar
peanut butter


Boil potato. Peel and mash. Add approximately 1 box of confectioners sugar until soft dough is formed. Roll between wax paper until 1/8 inch thick. Spread a thin layer of peanut butter over the top. Roll up like a jelly roll. Refrigerate overnight. Cut into pieces and cut into small pieces.
