How To Make Irish Peanut Butter Potato Candy

It might sound hard to believe but this potato candy is a true-blue dessert that is made sweeter with peanut butter and confectioner’s sugar.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 30 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 1potato,peeled and chopped
  • 32ozconfectioners sugar
  • ¼cupcreamy peanut butter,or as needed

Instructions

  1. Place potato into a saucepan with enough water to cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook potato for about 15 minutes until very tender. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two.

  2. Transfer potato to a large bowl and mash with a fork until smooth.

  3. Gradually stir confectioners’ sugar into mashed potato a little at a time until the mixture forms a stiff dough. The dough will be runny until all the powdered sugar is used.

  4. Place a large square of waxed paper onto a work surface. Roll or press dough into a 12-inch square rectangle on the waxed paper.

  5. Spread peanut butter over top of dough, covering it entirely.

  6. Pick up one edge of waxed paper and start rolling the dough to make a 12-inch-long log. Wrap log tightly with waxed paper.

  7. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Unwrap log and slice candy into cross-sectional pieces about ¾-inch thick to serve.
