If you've got peanut butter and powdered sugar on hand, all you need is a potato to make this delicious candy. Potato Candy is sometimes referred to as Poor Man's Candy or Peanut Butter Candy. It is also similar to our favorite Peanut Butter Balls which do not use a potato.

1 medium sized potato
1 box powdered sugar
1 small jar of peanut butter, store brand is fine for this recipe
Boil the potato until soft. Remove peeling and mash the insides. Mix the powdered sugar into the mashed potato until well combined and thick.
On a board dusted with powdered sugar, roll out the potato dough into a large rectangle and spread peanut butter on top.
Roll up the layered dough and wrap in waxed paper. Chill an hour or so, until dough is firm enough to slice.
Slice chilled roll into 1/2-inch wide pinwheels. Store in refrigerator for up to a week. Don't worry, they will NOT last that long!
