Easy 3 ingredient old fashion potato candy (no bake) is such a delicious and addictive treat – perfect for peanut butter lovers and neighbor gifts!

Ingredients

  • 1 small potato (should fit in a 1 cup measuring cup, you can also use half of a medium potato) peeled and cut into 1-2 inch pieces (alternate option: 1/2 cup plain mashed potatoes)
  • 6-8 cups powdered sugar
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter (or cookie butter)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
  • Instructions

  • Place potato in a smal pot, cover with water, and boil until very tender. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Mash (or use a hand mixer) until smooth and lump-free.
  • Add 4 cups powdered sugar and mix until blended (will be a sticky mess and this point). If opting to use vanilla, mix in now. Mix in more powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, until mixture is very thick (slightly thicker than cookie dough).
  • Lay down a large sheet of wax paper and sprinkle generously with powdered sugar. Transfer candy mixture to the wax paper and sprinkle the top with more powdered sugar. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick rectangle.
  • Spread peanut butter evenly over candy. Roll tightly (long side toward long side), then wrap in the wax paper. Cut in half crosswise and put the two halves inside a large resealable bag. Seal the bag and chill for at least 30 minutes until firm, or until about 30 minutes before ready to serve.
  • Unwrap candy and slice into 1-inch thick slices and serve or store in airtight container, chilled, up to 2 weeks.
