Potato what!??!

Potato Candy

This is what Chris said when I told him he was tasting "Potato Candy". My aunt introduced me to this sweet treat this weekend. It was a popular type of candy during the Depression. It is quick, easy, and yummy. You must try it! But be warned...a little piece goes a LONG way. These babies are sweeeet!

Potato Candy
½ of a small-medium size baking potato, peeled and mashed (about 2 Tablespoons; make sure it is cooled)
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon milk
2- 2 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 cup peanut butter

Mix together potato, butter or margarine, and milk. Add enough confectioners' sugar to make a stiff dough.
Roll out on a flat surface sprinkled with powdered sugar. Spread on a layer of peanut butter and roll up. Chill and slice.

And I say this with much affection, but this sounds downright kooky! :)~ I totally believe you that it's yummy though, sometimes the kookiest stuff is the best. :)
