  1. These are adorable for St. Patrick's day, and they sound delicious with cream cheese and coconut! Yummy. :) I can't believe it's around the corner...where is this year going?

  3. Interesting! I thought these would have potato in them, which I've been searching for. I love seeing unusual ingredients incorporated into dessert. These look delicious, and I think I just might try them one of these days.

    Found you through Pint Sized Baker's Two Cup Tuesdays, and I'm so glad I did!

  4. I've had these, but never rolled in cinnamon. They were dipped in chocolate! And that was yummy!

  5. I assumed it had potatoes! What a neat tradition.

  6. This is a recipe we loved as children when we could convince Mom to make this instead of potato patties with the left over mashed potatoes!

    Potato Peanut Butter Candy
    ½ cup mashed potatoes, mashed really well
    5 cups powdered sugar
    1 tsp. vanilla
    ¼ tsp. salt
    4 Tbs. peanut butter

    Mix mashed potatoes, vanilla and salt in a large bowl. Add one cup of powdered sugar at a time, kneading into a dough like consistency.

    Divide mixture in half and place each dough ball onto a piece of wax paper.

    Roll out dough into a semi-thin layer; spread a thin layer of creamy peanut butter onto dough. Very gently roll dough up into a loaf and wrap in wax paper

    Let roll sit in the refrigerator for about an hour or two.

    Unwrap and cut into 1 inch slices.
    PS Also ships really well if you have a soldier with a sweet tooth pining for some yummies from home.
    Have a blessed day,

  26. I made these once to bring to work and now it’s expected of me every year! They are really a big hit. But I do have a question I’m hoping you can help me with. When I first take them out of the fridge, they are the perfect consistency, but as they sit out and get to room temperature, they become pretty mushy. Do you know of an ingredient that might help they stay more firm?
