How To Make Peanut Butter Pinwheel Candy
Treat your tastebuds to a nutty bite with this peanut butter pinwheel candy. These 5-ingredient sweets are made with mashed potatoes for a heavenly dessert.
With an electric mixer, combine the mashed potatoes, butter, and 1 cup of sugar.
Add in remaining sugar, one cup at a time. Stir in the vanilla.
Refrigerate the filling for 1 hour.
Once chilled, divide the dough into 2 pieces and place 1 piece on a clean surface dusted generously with powdered sugar.
Dust the surface of the dough with additional sugar, and use a rolling pin to roll the dough out into a rectangle about ¼-inch thick.
Spread dough evenly with peanut butter, leaving a small amount of space peanut butter-free around the perimeter of the dough. Starting with the longer side of the rectangle, gently but tightly roll into a lot.
Use a knife to slice into pieces about ½-inch thick. Repeat with the remaining half of the dough.
Serve and enjoy.
- If the dough is not moldable in your hands and can’t be rolled into a ball, continue to add sugar until it is firm.
- Make sure that your dough can be rolled at this point, if it’s too sticky or falling apart, you may need to add more sugar, re-shape it into a ball, and start over.
