Potatoes are generally thought of as a savory dish, but those who taste potato candy are glad to put their preconceptions aside and enjoy the rich and remarkably sweet dessert. Basic potato candy is easy to make and can be created using only three ingredients: confectioner’s sugar, peanut butter, and, of course, potatoes. The potato is first boiled and then mashed; the mashed potato serves as an absorbent for the confectioner’s sugar. After being rolled out, the candy is then covered in peanut butter.

Once you have the hang of making potato candy, it is easy to experiment with different recipes and variations provided here. Some variations call for a sweet potato blend, creating a different texture and flavor. Try mixing cocoa in with the confectioners sugar or sprinkling the peanut butter with crushed nuts. Substituting the peanut butter for canned icing creates a delicious treat. You can also try rolling the candy into balls or other fun shapes.

While easy to make and delicious to eat, creating potato candy can be a messy process. But with the right attitude and a few precautions, such as covering your table with wax paper, making it can be an enjoyable process that you can even share with your children.

Potato candy was originally created as a substitute for more traditional types of sweets for those who did not have a lot of money. Today it is enjoyed by candy-lovers everywhere. Go ahead – choose your recipe and mix up a batch!
