My recipes from today

Lots of requests for Recipes from today’s treats– I just can’t stop myself–I keep making more and more goodies….

So, you are ALL going to have to come over and help me eat them!! 🙂

Sound good?

Okay– first recipe is Potato Candy- which can be dyed to be any color– I did Pink!

1/2 cup mashed potatoes (about 1 potato, peeled and boiled)
powered sugar
peanut butter

Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes and power sugar till is firm enough to roll (about the entire bag of Powdered sugar). The mixture will become very wet (take this time to add the food coloring); just keep adding powdered sugar. Roll out on powdered sugar like noodles. Cover with peanut butter. Roll into jelly roll cut into small pieces. Very rich!

My husband, didn’t think the pink was very appetizing–but the kids loved it! 🙂
