How to make it

  • Combine mashed potatoes, powdered sugar, vanilla, butter and maple
  • syrup until a dough forms. It's better to wait until the potato is
  • cooled because if you don't, the sugar melts and you seem to have to
  • add alot more sugar than if the potato were cooled. Roll the dough
  • out to whatever thickness you like. Roll it to about 1/4 inch or
  • maybe a little thicker. Spread peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
  • onto the rolled out dough. Roll the candy up and wrap it in wax
  • paper or plastic wrap. Put it in the refrigerator to harden it up a
  • little. Slice and eat.

    Well, I have to say this was a "Surprize". Maybe I misread the recipe, but I used left over cold baked potatoes, mashed to 1 cup. After I had added a 2# bag of powdered sugar, I cut the mixture in 1/2. Still took almost another 2# bag to get it to a dough consistancy. The rest went OK and it is delicious. Thanks
