I was reading an Amish romance book and it mentioned "Potato Candy" so when I saw this recipe here I had to try it out. I must say I was a bit disappointed. It is super super sweet! The peanut butter cuts down the sweetness a little, but one small piece will be enough to last me the entire holiday season. But that is just me... I feel the same way about fudge, so to each their own!
