Potato Candy for Saint Patrick's Day

These little spud candies are delicious, easy to make and are even made out of potatoes!
What could be better than that for a St. Patrick's Day treat?

Boil and mash one small potato. Add:
1 Tablespoon butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup of peanut butter

Cream together until there are no little lumps of potato.
Add powdered sugar one cup at a time until it reaches a good soft playdough type consistency.  It all depends on how large and moist your potato was. It will be any where from 2-4 cups of powdered sugar.

Mix about a quarter cup of powdered sugar and a quarter cup of cocoa  powder together in a small bowl.
Take a small piece of your candy dough and shape it into the shape of a miniature potato.
Roll in the cocoa-sugar mixture to coat.

You can break off little pieces of peanuts to make the eyes of the potatoes.
Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve. They will firm up a little as they cool.
