My mom used to make these, and I was thinking about it the other day...I may have to make a batch.  Cool

I made these yesterday and they're divine, mine didn't turn out pretty, but sure were tasty.

Yep... I made this candy when I was in elementary school. I don't want to admit how long ago that was.  I was reminded of it just recently and searched the internet and found some variations too.  Some call it Irish Potato Candy. There must be some strong ESP going on out there....

yum.  could there be a different flavor for the middle?  I wonder if a chocolate concoction could be made up?  These look habit forming.

My grandma made this ever christmas and now we do! We always try and have people guess what it's made of....they never guess poatoes!

mmm, i bet it would be super tasty with a tart jam instead of the peanut butter! it would need to be pretty darn tart, though, to cope with all the sugary sweetness of the rest!

What about lemon curd?! Or key lime something or other.. OMG I have never heard of this potato candy but I am SO making this tomorrow!

When my father was a child his family was pretty poor (He had 10 sisters and 9 brothers... eep)  And for a treat he used to eat raw potato dipped in sugar (Yuk!)  This sounds much better.
