    This is a delicious candy you don't have to cook or bake. People are often surprised to know the white is made of potatoes and not cream cheese.


    • 1/4 cup unseasoned mashed potatoes
    • 2 tbs. milk
    • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 1 (16 ounce package) confectionary sugar
    • 1/3 cup peanut butter (I use creamy)
    • 1 tbs. confectionary sugar for dusting


    1. Combine mashed potates, milk, vanilla extract and salt in a bowl. Stir confectionary sugar into potato mixture making dough.
    2. Refrigerate dough for 1 hour, or until chilled.
    3. Sprinkle confectionary sugar on a cutting board or waxed paper.
    4. Roll dough into a large rectangle on cutting board or waxed paper.
    5. Spread enough peanut butter on the top of the dough to cover the mixture.
    6. Roll dough into a jelly-roll shape.
    7. Refrigerate 1 hour.
    8. Slice dough into pinwheels and serve.

      So. My dough looks more like frosting than it does dough... has anyone else experienced any issues like this?
