    Charleen I found several these three seem closer to the ingredients you mentioned. I hope this works for you and have a great Christmas

    Potato Candy

    1 med. potato
    1/2 tsp. vanilla flavoring
    1 box confectioners sugar
    1 jar peanut butter

    Cook and peel one medium potato. Cook until you can mash it. After mashing, add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 1 box of confectioners sugar. Add more sugar until you can roll out like dough. Spread peanut butter over dough. Roll up in a roll. Cut into 1/2 inch pieces. Put on plate. Let cool in refrigerator before eating.

    Mix together. Roll dough about 1/4 inch thick. Spread enough peanut butter to cover, then roll up into a long roll. Slice into 1/2 inch pieces. Store in airtight container in a cool place.

    I just made a batch earlier foir a couple of people who loves it. It is really richer at first. Gets better as it ages some. Keep in a sealed continer, wax paper or such in between layers or it sticks together.

    Have a large amount of Confectionary sugar at hand. It takes a lot. I usually do not add the vanilla, but I have. Some add other flavors also, like maple or mint, etc. Some adds cocoa along with potato and sugar when beating. Or can do it the more common way and dip in melted chocolate and let it sit until hardens and store it. There is a lot of variations on this.

    Important.....potato must be hot when you beat it (I use mixer) and make it.

    Once you try this yourself, do it with some children for a special experience for them. They love doing such.

    Good Luck with it and Merry Christmas,,,,,,,Susan
