    A friend shared this on FB and I am curious. Did any of you try this and what's it like?

    I bet they are pretty tasty. Of course... I wouldn't make that statement unless one used fresh, home grown potatoes. Sumi, why don't you make a batch, and report back???

    Ive always found it a bit too sweet but my husband likes it. Hubby's Mom made potato candy many times, so I learned. One piece is enough for me but I know some people who gobble it

    Left over mashed potatoes from the night before were used. Add enough powdered sugar to make a dough. Roll flat. Smear on whatever thickness of creamy peanut butter you prefer, then roll and cut.

    We don't eat potatoes - much less potatoes with sugar in them....but...if somebody threw a piece at me I'd probably at least try it.

    Send them to me. I try them for you and let you know if they are fit for human consumption or not.

    Thanks for volunteering, but I think you should make them yourself! ;)
