Christmas Potato Candy


I told you I would share some of our family recipes during the Christmas holiday.  Now, don’t let the name Potato Candy scare you.  This candy is wonderful.  My Granny Woodrum (you can read about her on my earlier posts) “always” made this candy for Christmas.

1 medium potato

Peanut Butter

Confectioners Sugar


Boil 1 medium potato.  Peel and mash with a fork until smooth and no lumps.  Add confectioners sugar until stiff.  You will need to determine how much since it varies according to the size of the potato.  Dust a cutting board with some confectioners sugar.  Roll out as if you were rolling out pie crust, make it sort of oblong.

Spread peanut butter on top of  what you just rolled out.  Starting at the wider side…roll up like a jelly roll.  Cover in a wrap and chill.  Cut in pieces before serving.

This is a very simple recipe and people will think you took hours to make it.

Merry Christmas!

Jesus is the reason for the season.
