Potato Candy
Potato candy is a traditional holiday treat, made even more festive with red and green food coloring.


Cream Caramels are another favorite holiday recipe.


  1. Quarter and boil the potato until soft. Drain well and combine in a mixer with milk, vanilla and salt.
  2. Add sugar, 1 cup at a time, until a stiff dough forms. Add a few drops of food coloring, if desired.
  3. Roll dough out on a large piece of parchment paper, using additional sugar if necessary to avoid sticking. Form a rectangle, about 18-by-12-inches in size.
  4. Spread peanut butter evenly on top of the dough. Carefully roll the dough into a log. A pinwheel pattern will form in the center.
  5. Wrap the log in cling wrap and freeze for about one hour. Slice into ½-inch pieces, cleaning the knife between each slice.
