A Fun Candy for St. Paddy's Day!
Here is a wonderful candy recipe using that old Irish staple...the potato. My sister-in-law Kathy makes this wonderful treat and is sharing her recipe...
1 small potato, boiled and peeled.
A box of powdered sugar.
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Creamy peanut butter.
Mash the boiled potato with a small amount of the powdered sugar and the vanilla extract, till well mixed then keep adding the sugar till you have a dough form.
Roll out on some waxed paper till about 1/4 inch thick, sprinkle a little powdered sugar on so it doesn’t stick to the rolling pin.
Spread a thin layer of peanut butter over the dough.
Using the waxed paper, start rolling (like a jelly roll).
Wrap the rolled dough in waxed paper and place it in the refrigerator till cold.
Cut into 1/2 inch slices and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
