According to my recipe, this is an “Old Pennsylvania Dutch Recipe.” It is super simple, and is probably quite tasty. The recipe does not say which type of potato to use. I would think the starchier the better!
Of course, I’d wash your taters before making candy out of them 🙂
Potato Candy – Old Pennsylvania Dutch Recipe

Rub in 4X confectioner’s sugar to mold. Flavor and color to taste. Shape as desired. Roll in chocolate shot or melted chocolate. Use as any fondant.
What is chocolate shot??
