I thought this week I would make a family favorite! My Mom’s recipe – Peanut Butter Candy!
It’s easy and a fun treat to work on with the kids!
Peanut Butter Candy
Peanut Butter – Smooth or Crunchy – Crunchy tends to make it less sweet (in this case that’s a good thing!)
Mashed Potato (I know it sounds odd – just watch)
You can make this with leftover mashed potatoes or with a potato you boil and mash up with a fork. You only need a small amount so it’s perfect for even a spoonful leftover from dinner.
We usually make it during the Holidays – so, you can use your leftover Thanksgiving or mashed potatoes, too!
I used a potato I boiled and smashed with a fork until pretty smooth. Put this in a mixing bowl and then add powdered sugar a bit at a time and mix by hand until it becomes dough-like.
The potato makes the powdered sugar get really thin and wet so you have to keep mixing and adding powdered sugar until you get a dough.
Lay out some wax paper and cover it with powdered sugar.
Take your dough and lay it on the wax paper and roll it out thin. You may need to add some more powdered sugar if it’s too wet while you are rolling it out.
Of course, Mom’s looks better!
That’s it! Fast and easy!
