The recipe for this Christmas Potato Log Candy was submitted by Mark De Monbrun from the Timothy DeMonbreun Descendants, et al Facebook group as Mom's Rot Your Teeth errr. . Christmas Potato Log Candy. Also called Amish Potato Candy and Irish Potato Candy, This stuff is amazing! It is very, very sweet. And oh so yummy! I am posting the recipe just as Mark did.
One Large Potato
Three Boxes Powdered Sugar. Maybe Four.
Peanut Butter With or Without Nuts.
Peel, Boil, & Mash One Large Potato.
In a bowl put a couple scoops of the mashed potatoes.
Add Powdered Sugar mixing till you get a nice dough.
Sprinkle Powdered Sugar on to a large preferably marble or glass (wood or plastic will do) surface and on to a rolling pin.
Roll out the dough till it's Pie Crust (1/8th"or so) thick.
Cut the ends straight so it's a rectangle about 10" by 16" or so.
Glob a thin (or thick) layer of Peanut Butter all over it leaving maybe 1/2" on the far end bare. Sprinkle with nuts or use Chunky Peanut Butter if that be your want
Use a sharp knife also sprinkled with Powdered Sugar to help separate the dough from the glass work area as you are rolling in to a Log.
Semi-Cut almost all the way through in to half inch pieces while leaving the Log somewhat intact. Refrigerate.
Yields Four To Six 10" by 3" Logs. . . Enjoy!!!
And, Be Sure To Rinse Your Mouth or Brush Your Teeth Immediately.
Notes: Joyce DeMonbrun, also a member of the Facebook group, says:
For Christmas add red or green food color when you boil the potatoes.
You can also do nutella or almond butter.
And Mark is right! make sure to brush your teeth after you eat these!
