"Poor Man's Candy" - Peanut Butter/Potato Candy
submitted by Elizabeth

My Grandmother used to call this Poor Man's Candy.


1 large cooked potato
Powdered sugar (I cant tell you how much because it depends on the size of the potato)
Peanut butter


Cook potato, mash it up, then start adding powdered sugar until it forms dough-like consistency.  Roll out flat, as if making a pie crust.  Spread on peanut butter and roll up in a log shape, refrigerate until cold, then slice. this a very sweet candy so a lot goes along way.

P.S. Thanks for your tips on saving money!
